The Word Is: “Fun”

Definition: “Entertainment that provides amusement or enjoyment.”

Sentence: “Don’t miss this fun TONY Award winning musical comedy!”


An eclectic group of sixth graders arrives at the spelling bee, each eager to compete for very different reasons and with the hopes of winning the ultimate prize, a trip to the national spelling bee. Featuring a thrilling score by William Finn, with its quick wit and a few surprises, Spelling Bee is an entertaining award-winning musical. Adding to the fun, each night four audience members volunteer to participate in the Bee and try their luck at winning, making each show different with its own special comical dynamic. It’s a joyful production of comedy and quirkiness that celebrates the pursuit of victory and the gift of being true to oneself.

Over ten years ago The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee made its regional premiere at The TADA Theatre receiving rave reviews and two sold out runs as well as an invitation from The Lied Center For Performing Arts to have it performed on their main stage. This year, as the patrons’ pick for the theatre's 15th anniversary season, its latest incarnation makes its debut this October!
