25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Senior Musical Theatre

NESCol Basement Theatre

6th-8th April 2016

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.


Fresh back from the Prague Fringe Festival and ready for a new challenge, our Senior Musical Theatre group presented 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee as their first public performance in Aberdeen. The whole production relies on equally exaggerated, yet believable characterisation from the cast as they transform into ‘tweens’.
