Arts Council presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” – opens March 16

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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. SPELLING BEE is appropriate for teens – up.

GPAC’s production of SPELLING BEE features a regional cast of talented adults, playing 6th grade students, on stage at the Historic Uptown Theater in downtown Grand Prairie.
