The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

December 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by AGHS Theatre Company

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.

Held in the Studio Theater.

General Admission – Adults $15, Seniors $12, Students $10, Faculty/Staff $5, $2 more at the door.
