The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

People think we’re automatons, but that is exactly what we’re not!

by William Finn, Rachel Sheinkin, and Rebecca Feldman

Spelling Bee Poster

When a group of quirky and ridiculous youngsters compete in their regional spelling bee, they are quickly swept up into the P-A-N-D-E-M-O-N-I-U-M of the competition. These logophiles triumph, fail, and come to life over the course of the spelling bee. With a hilarious book and incredible music, it’s impossible to pick a favorite moment of the bee, and we can’t wait for you to meet our spellers.
