A group of nervous young people find themselves as finalists in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. These quirky yet charming outsiders learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. With an engaging, tuneful score and a sweet, funny book that won the 2005 Tony Award, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its "perspicacious," "jocular," and "effervescent" spellers.
