Putnam Valley Middle School is having its annual spelling bee and a quirky collection of six pre-teens have made it to the finals. The bee, run by three capricious adults, finds the young participants sharing stories of their lives while spelling their way through the words on the road to that championship title. Winner of the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful musical, complete with audience participation and is sure to tickle your “humerus.”
