About this show

North Shore Music Theater and Barrington Stage Company co-produce The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, featuring a Tony Award-winning book by Rachel Sheinkin and music & lyrics by William Finn. This musical comedy follows six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This tuneful, offbeat and at times heartwarming show offers audience members the opportunity (strictly voluntary) to become part of the action as on-stage spellers. So get out your dictionaries, and get ready for an evening filled with humor and heart.
