Musical Encore: THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE—April 21 & 23 at Sheyenne HS Blackbox
Can you spell H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S? After a successful run at home and on a mini-tour around the state this fall and winter, Sheyenne High School Theatre revives THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin for one last time this spring. This Tony Award-winning musical will play three performances in the SHS Black Box Theatre: Friday, April 21 at 7:00pm and Sunday, April 23 at 2:00pm and 7:00pm.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents (and four guest spellers) 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, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Ten spellers enter the bee, but only one speller leaves! The losers get a juice box, a hug, and the satisfaction of a well-attempted (though futile) effort.
Tickets can be purchased at the door beginning one hour before performances. All seats are general admission and priced $12.00 for adults and $10.00 for students. Seating will be limited.
