    To add a twist of fun to our 2015 season, we're going to get the audience involved! We all remember the days gone by of classroom spelling bees.... Now we present a spelling bee like no other! Welcome to The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!

    Set in the geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School, six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. Ranging in spelling everything from "cow" to "weltanschauung" this fun, audience interactive show will provide endless laughs well beyond the evening here at the Opera House.
