Now Playing

Conceived by Rebecca Feldman, Additional Material by Jay Reiss
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin


Six awkward tweens (all played by adults) vie for the coveted spelling championship in this fast-paced, H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S Tony Award-winning comedy. As they fight to stay in the contest, the students – each with their own quirky and engaging personality – share hilarious and touching tales from their home lives. An engaging, tuneful scor and a sweet, funny book, will cause audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.

Tickets for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be available to the general public on Monday January 6, 2020 online (for a fee), at 419-223-8866 or at the Box Office (see hours above).​


Adult $17.00

In Search of Director for April 2020

We are in search of a director for our April, 2020 McDonald Youth Show as the selected director has had to withdraw due to work commitments. While we had originally planned to produce James and the Giant Peach JR., we realize that due to the change in directors, they might not be prepared in time for that show, so the board has made the decision to change the show to Disney’s Frozen Jr. We are also looking for a music director and choreographer, although the director has the right to choose their own.

If anyone is interested in directing, please let us know by this next Thursday, January 30th, 2020 as we plan on having any interviews on Sunday, February 2, at 2pm.

The audition dates for the show are already set for February 24th and 25th, and production dates are April 17th – 19th, 2020. No application needed, just please let us know if you are interested in directing.
