Black Box Studios Proudly Presents: ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’

(Courtesy of Black Box Studios) The Black Box Performing Arts Center’s popular Rock Musical Theatre Intensive returns for a 10th summer production with Finn, Sheinkin and Feldman’s, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

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. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie 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.

Evening performances (rated PG-13+ for strong language) will be on Monday, August 6, at 8:00 p.m.; Tuesday, August 7, at 8:00 p.m.; and Thursday, August 9, at 8:00 p.m.. Special daytime performances (rated PG) will be on Tuesday, August 7, at 2:00 p.m.; Thursday, August 9, at 2:00 p.m.; and Friday, August 10, at 3:00 p.m..

Black Box Performing Arts Center is located at 200 Walraven Drive, Teaneck. Tickets are on sale now at www.BlackBoxPAC.com: $20 for adults and $15 for students/seniors.
