The Story:

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. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor.

Based on guidance from the CDC and in step with Broadway and Rochester area theaters, masks are currently being worn at STAGES by everyone over the age of 2. In addition, cast, crew, staff and audience members ages 12 and over must be vaccinated and show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with ID. Students under 12 are welcome with a mask. Subject to change, effective immediately, as needed.

We are grateful live theater is once again a part of this community - where our talented, focused, and committed youth performers can bring theater magic and joy to an audience!
