MONROE — The Playhouse at Museum Village opens its 19th season Sept. 12 with the Tony Award-winning musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”
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 charm and humor.
According to a press release from The Playhouse, "An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents (played by adults) vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words hoping to never 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 show does contain some adult humor and is recommended for patrons 12 years of age and over.
Music and lyrics are by William Finn with book by Rachel Sheinkin. The production is directed and choreographed by Terri Weiss with musical direction by Brian Flint.
Evening performances are scheduled for Sept. 12, 13, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 at 8 p.m.
Matinee performances are at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27, and Sundays, Sept. 21, and 28.
All performances are at The Playhouse at Museum Village, Route 17M, in Monroe.
Tickets to individual performances are $22 each, which includes dessert at intermission consisting of apple pie, ice cream, cheese, iced tea and coffee.
Group rates are available and reservations are suggested.
