Auditions: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Maurer Productions

The High Energy Musical

About the Show

Maurer Productions OnStage, the company that brought you the Perry Award winning Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Driving Miss Daisy and the Glass Menagerie will be holding open auditions for its upcoming production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on Feb 15-16-17.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. 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. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser filled with audience participation, laughter and fun.
