No. No. No. This is not a real spelling bee. It’s a show – a very musical comedy.

And Putnam County is entirely fictional – not a misprint for Volusia.

But it could have been. It could have been here – or anywhere. These could be our children. It could be you or your neighbor reading out the words, giving goofy definitions, and offering hilarious and sometimes poignant usage examples.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee takes spell-bound audiences to a fictional contest held in a Middle School where six unforgettably peculiar early teens face each other in a competition supervised by three comically idiosyncratic grown-ups. Adding to the fun are four audience members who agree to appear as spellers. On Broadway, Al Sharpton and Julie Andrews were among them (Playbill 1/27/2008). Flashbacks show play goers the flawed parental relations which have shaped the pressure ridden spellers and reveal to audiences the real children behind their not-quite polished public faces. With a Tony award-winning book, this is a must-see finale for the Athens Theatre’s season.

All shows start at 7:30 p.m. with exception of June 5 and June 12.
