Muskogee Little Theatre continues the August musical comedy production, “The 25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” this weekend. Ticket prices are $14 for adults and $10 for students. Show times are at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13, 2010, and Saturday, Aug. 14, 2010.
Six kids face off in the battle of their lives. The competition is intense. The words are outrageous. Let the spelling (and the singing) begin! Three adults adjudicate the proceedings: a nostalgic former spelling bee winner, a midly insane Vice Principle and The Official Comfort Councilor completing his community service to the State of New York. Both tender and sardonic, this hilarious Tony Award-winning musical of overachievers angst brings you inside the spelling championship to end them all. This show is recommended for all ages.
Before every performance of “The 25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” four audience volunteers are recruited to participate on-stage as guest spellers. Each new foursome guarantees a new set of hilarious and unexpected experiences. The willing contestants are chosen through pre-show lobby interviews and questionnaire.
Potential guest spellers should arrive at the theatre 45 minutes prior to curtain. The show is co-sponsored by Rotary Club of Muskogee and MyPro’s. All productions at Muskogee Little Theatre are presented with the assistance of The Oklahoma Arts Council. For more information, go to www.muskogeelittletheatre.com or call (918) 816-0688.
