About the show:  The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a long form one act musical comedy. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally-quirky grown-ups.  It is a ridiculously funny and poignant take on modern American culture as seen through the eyes of Middle schoolers.
