Experience the joys and heartbreaks of bare-knuckled competition as an eclectic group of determined entrants vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” that signals a spelling mistake. As each contestant steps to the microphone to confront increasingly difficult words, they candidly disclose hilarious and touching anecdotes from their home lives.  The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is fast-paced, slightly irreverent and touching, with a fresh and vibrant score.  Winner of the Tony and Drama Desk awards for Best Book, this show has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. You won’t want to miss this U-N-F-O-R-G-E-T-T-A-B-L-E evening of pure fun.

Join us in one of the most elegant performance venues in Southern California – the sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Long Beach.
