The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Poster for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

“The chaotic life of a twelve year old is too hard and you never know what’s coming next, but in spelling things have logic and line.”

One person wins and everyone else loses in the competitive world of a spelling bee, and even though these kids have been told by their parents that just being there is winning, each of them knows that just isn’t true. So how far should each of these elementary students go to win? Not recommended for young children.

Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

November 1, 2, 8, and 9 at 7:30 p.m.; November 3 and 10 at 2 p.m. – Fisher Theater,  Ames
