The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Music and lyrics by William Finn
Directed by Darren Yap
Music Direction by Andrew Bevis
Choreography by Kelley Abbey

Spelling never seemed so cut-throat as in this Tony Award-winning musical about six charming outsider teens edging closer to the coveted championship title. The Spelling Bee is the one place they can both stand out and fit in.

They are under the watchful eyes of parents and teachers who’ve barely made it out of their own adolescence. Witty and unexpectedly heart-warming, here’s a show that proves that winning isn’t everything and losing doesn’t make you a loser.

Darren Yap, who has directed across Australia as well as in Singapore, Tokyo and the UK, helms a production with music direction by West End whizz Andrew Bevis and choreography by the legendary Kelley Abbey.
