Theatre Harrisburg Presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Krevsky Center

June 9 - June 25, 2023

This production takes place at Krevsky Center, which is located at: 

513 Hurlock St.
Harrisburg, PA 17110

A Tony®-Award winning Musical Comedy with Music and Lyrics by William Finn and Book by Rachel Sheinkin. Conceived by Rebecca Feldman

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to 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. 

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
