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.
Putnam County Spelling Bee will be performed at the Clark Center by the AGHS Theatre Company, December 6-14.
