ATCteen Presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!
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.
*Some mature themes, we recommend this show for ages 12 and up. If you have questions about content feel free to reach out to us!
