An ecletic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories about  their 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. 

 

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a Special Event and is not part of the season ticket package.
