NHHS Drama Presents "25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee"
Posted 11/5/19

Come join NHHS Theater for the whimsical musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Performances at the Wentz Theater are Nov 15-17 & 22-24; Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm and Sundays are at 2pm.

"This wonderfully entertaining Tony Award and Drama Desk Award winning musical follows a fictional and eclectic group of six middle schoolers vying 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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box."
