Bartlett High School’s Panther Playhouse presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with music and lyrics by William Finn. This production runs November 3rd-11th at Bartlett High School.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee tells the story of an eclectic group of six adolescents vying 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 a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.
The production stars Morgan Conner as Rona Lisa Perretti, Elliot Lear as Vice Principal Douglas Panch, Nate Freeman as William Barfee, Alyssa McNinch as Olive Ostrovsky, Chase Taylor as Chip Tolentino, Anora Moyer as Loggaine Schwartzandgrubenniere, Bryce Goodson as Leaf Coneybear, Ainsley Keegan as Marcy Park, and Malachi Stewart as Mitch Mahoney. The show also features an ensemble starring Brylee Harber, Hayley Lunsford, Charles Johnson, Kylee Oldham, Joshua Orozco, and Adalee Walker.
This production is directed by Kirie Walz, with technical direction by Kevin Rogers and designed by BHS theatre students.
