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.
