Tony Award Winning Musical Comes to Civic Theater

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Tom Fudge : Spelling Bees have become a pretty popular source of drama lately. Within the past year we’ve seen two popular movies based on spelling bees: Bee Season and Akeelah and the Bee. Broadway has also produced a musical with a spelling bee at its core.

The show is called The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee . The show has won two Tony Awards for best book and best featured actor. And it’s now on stage at the San Diego Civic theater. Being a live play, it allows for a certain amount of change and spontaneity from show to show. And The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee does this by getting its audience involved.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee runs through December 10th at the San Diego Civic Theater.

Guests
  • Katie Boren, plays dance captain Marcy Park in the musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
  • Eric Peterson , plays William Barfee in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
