The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious Broadway musical comedy that focuses on the memory of elementary school life with its desperate search to be someone and fit in.
Theatre Ancaster’s Stage 3 Young Company brings alive the quirky and touching stories of six young students and three oddball adults looking for meaning in their lives and personal glory in the annual spelling bee that takes to the stage in the Theatre Auditorium at Ancaster High from Feb. 27 to March 2.
“It’s a fun, clever, nostalgic look at growing up with all its struggles and joys,” said Sam Frisk, director of the program.
“Each speller in Putnam is introduced through flashbacks, with the other actors playing parts in their memories. There are lots of great song and dance numbers in the show and a range of emotions all will recognize.”
As part of each performance, Theatre Ancaster’s Young Company maintains the Broadway tradition that includes willing audience volunteers as guest spellers that guarantees another level of fun for everyone.
Evening performances begin at 8 p.m. on Feb. 27, 28 and continue March 1 and 2 at the Theatre Auditorium at Ancaster High School, 374 Jerseyville Rd. W. at Meadowbrook. General admission. Adults $12, students $8. Check TheatreAncaster.com for more performance information.
