Dixie High School presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Performance dates February 22- 24, & 26
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. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. This quirky one-act show centers on a middle school spelling bee and chronicles the experiences of eclectic group of six adolescents vying 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.
The Dixie High School Arts Department’s production this spring is a delightful musical Comedy that includes improvisation and audience participation, under the direction of the Theater Instructor, Mr. Joshua Scott. For the last 20 years Mr. Scott has been a fixture in the theatre community of Southern Utah, taking part in the wonderful productions at Dixie State University, Tuacahn, and The Stage Door. He is so happy to be able to continue his work with the talented students of Dixie High School.
Performances are scheduled for February 22, 23,24, & 26 @ 7:30 PM in DHS Performing Arts Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at showtix4u.com or at the door.
