ITM Presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee 11/7-11/9

InterMission Theatre Presents the side-splitting musical THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE 11/7-11/9 in the Hemsley Theatre at Vilas Hall.

Tickets are $5

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.
