THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE AUGUST 12, 2019 AT 7:00PM THE GERDING THEATRE AT THE ARMORY Direction by Darius Pierce Musical Direction by Darcy White ABOUT THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE Music & Lyrics by William Finn Book by Rachel Sheinkin Conceived by Rebecca Feldman Additional Material by Jay Reiss 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. WHAT IS ANONYMOUS THEATRE? Auditions are held... in secret. The play is cast... in secret. Cast members rehearse the show one-on-one with the directors... secretly... and do not learn the identity of the other cast members. On the night of the performance, the actors arrive in street clothes and enter the theatre as if they are members of the audience. They take their seats. They read their programs. They chat with their neighbors. The house lights dim and the play begins... with each actor delivering his or her first line from their seat. The audience gets to see the story happen as if it is happening for the first time... because it actually is happening for the first time. Visit Anonymous Theatre at www.anonymoustheatre.org.
