Detour Company Theatre presents
25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Winner of the Tony® and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, features a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a vibrant score by William Finn for an unforgettable experience.

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 words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! A riotous ride, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
