NDC Theatre Presents "Putnam County Spelling Bee"

Get out your dictionaries! The Tony Award-winning musical comedy, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” – one of Broadway's most buzzed about hits – is in attendance at Notre Dame College's Theatre Department on Nov. 9, 10 and 11.

The hip musical comedy follows six young people in the throes of puberty, who are overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, as they learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.

With its enormously appealing cast of lovable misfits, nerds, neurotics (and no jocks), “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” hilariously captures the angst, exhilaration and heartache that makes growing up so painful and so wonderful.

Directed by NDC adjunct faculty member Brian Marshall, this hilarious and quirky musical was conceived by Rebecca Feldman and is based on a book by Rachel Sheinkin. The music and lyrics are by William Finn.

The musical is recommended for theatergoers 13 and over. At each performance, four audience volunteers are invited on stage to participate in the Bee, making each performance unique.

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” will premier in the College’s Performing Arts Center at noon on Friday, Nov. 9. There will be another performance that day at 7:30 p.m., followed by performances at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 10 and 2 p.m. on Nov. 11.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For more information, contact Assistant Professor of Communication Jacqi Loewy at jloewy@ndc.edu or 216.373.5189, or Brian Marshall at bmarshall@ndc.edu or 216.374.3047.
