The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Triad Pride Acting Company is proud to present the Tony Award-winning musical to kick off the 25th season of TPPA “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”, opening Aug. 18, 2023.
The heartfelt musical comedy celebrates the triumphs and tragedies of adolescence as a group of six ragtag pre-teens (all played by adults) compete in a spelling bee. Pandemonium ensues as they vie for the top spot and spell their way to nationals. The high-stakes competition puts each contestant at the mic and in the spotlight as we learn about their hilarious and touching stories.
The musical features six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves. They learn that winning isn’t everything and losing doesn’t necessarily make one a loser,
