FROM THE PRODUCER:
Join Contra Costa Musical Theatre (CCMT) for their first musical production in over two years! This show is a riotous ride, complete with audience participation. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, this fabulous musical features a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
SYNOPSIS:An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
Don't miss your chance to see this heartwarming show. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll leave feeling better than you did when you walked in.
PLEASE NOTE: This production is rated PG-13 due to a small number of profanities and vulgarities. Ticket prices include a $3 Preservation Fee for the upkeep and preservation of the historic El Campanil Theatre.
