Auditions - The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
May 22nd at 5:00 P.M.
Callbacks: May 23rd at 5:00 P.M. - If you are called back, you are automatically in the workshop. The tuition fee of $260 is due before the audition for specific roles begins - this is a non-refundable payment.
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.
