The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

September 10th - October 2nd

Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Directed by Larry Landsman

Nominated for six Tony Awards, this unlikely hit musical is about the unlikeliest group of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. And at every performance, four audience members will join the Bee on stage for their chance at immortality (just come 45 minutes early to sign up)!

"The word is weltanschauung." 

May I have a definition? "One's personal perspective, your philosophy, the way you look at the world." 

Please use in a sentence. "The weltanschauung revealed in composer-lyricist William Finn and book writer Rachel Sheinkin's winsome and winning new musical is so generously warm-hearted, only the most bitter misanthrope could resist its charms." 
-David Rooney, Variety.
