Brookswood Sec. School's Musical Theatre program is excited to present
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE!
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin.
This show ran on Broadway in 2005/6 and received two Tony Awards.
In this musical comedy, six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
This show is filled with a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
A unique feature of this musical is that there are three audience volunteers recruited every night to participate on-stage as guest spellers. Each new group of volunteers guarantees a new set of hilarious and unexpected experiences, one night is just as unique as the one before it. The willing contestants are chosen through a careful vetting process, utilizing pre-show
lobby interviews and audience questionnaires.
Our production has over 50 students in the cast, orchestra and crew.
We have been rehearsing since October and are thrilled to bring this show to the community.
The production team includes Ms. Sharon Conrad, Mr. Gordon Hamilton, and Ms. Sheri Eyre as Artistic Directors,
Mr. Derrick Turi as Music Director, and Mr. Jordan Allarie as our Choreographer.
Set, Costume, and Lighting Design is by Mr. Gordon Hamilton.
