El Paseo Arts Foundation Presents: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee musical

Can you spell “FUN”?

Wednesday, November 15 thru Friday, November 17, 2017 El Paseo Arts kicks off its first local actor production of the season with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a Tony award-winning musical! Doors open at 6:30 PM at the South Padre Island Convention Center with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, and the show starts at 7:30.

Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor as a group of students (played by adults) vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing touching stories from their home life, the eclectic group of six pubescents (and some audience volunteers) spell their way through a series of words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. It’s a riotous ride complete with audience participation.

On Saturday, October 28th, 2017, El Paseo Arts Foundation presents A’lante Flamenco at the nightclub located at 5908 Padre Blvd, near the southeast corner of the intersection of Padre Blvd and Sunset Street, South Padre Island, TX. “The sounds of rapid-fire hand clapping, feet pounding the floor, and guitars strumming to the plaintive sounds of flamenco singing are the sensory treats that provide the backdrop for A’lante Flamenco’s newest work, Flamencura. An electrifying evening of flamenco music and dance, Flamencura transports audiences into a traditional Spanish flamenco club, where the four dancers and three musicians of A’lante Flamenco show off their skills with fire and passion.

One night Tessa’s dad comes home with a litter of kittens he found by the side of the road. The family can’t keep the whole “kit and caboodle” but they adopt two of them. Tessa learns the delights of kitten company and why it is so important to “fix” our beloved pets. Tessa’s mother demonstrates with large pieces of paper and rubber stamps of cats just how many kittens could be born to a single mom cat every year.

Along with her profession, Paige Grant has pursued her lifelong avocations of singing old songs, currently as co-director of the group Melismata and writing creatively, encouraged by her children who demanded bedtime songs and stories.


These events are free and open to the public.
