The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Auditions

Performances July 21-30, 2017

CAST LIST

Thank you to everyone for auditioning for the 2017 Summer Teen Production of 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.  Eron, Theresa, and Caitlin enjoyed seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends as well.  We aim to create an environment that allows all actors a chance to create a well-rounded character, work as a team, and experience the feeling of being on stage whether it’s the first time in a production or not. When reviewing the part you are given do not base its importance on the number of lines you are given but on your ability to create a dynamic character. Every part in this play is needed to make this show a success! We have double cast some characters, and those actors will be part of the ensemble when not playing their double cast part. No matter what part you receive we encourage you to continue to build your skills through classes, camps, workshops, and auditioning for future shows.  Here’s to another exciting theatrical adventure! For more information about the show and it’s characters, go to the publisher link below under credits.  The refund policy is below also.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone May 23 at the parent meeting.

SYNOPSIS

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.
