The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music & Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International

Directed by Alex Schwarz

Thursdays-Saturdays, October 6-8 & 13-15 at 7:30 PM
Sundays,  October 9 & 16 at 2:30 PM

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents [played by adults] 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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation.
Suitable for mature audiences.

Based upon the teleplay by Val DeCrow and Andrew J. Fenady.
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing

Directed by Tory Hooton

Thursdays-Saturdays, December 8-10 & 15-17 at 7:30 PM
Sundays, December 11 & 18 at 2:30 PM

Inspired by a simple, poignant letter written over 100 years ago by 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon to the editor of the New York Sun—and by the timeless editorial response printed on the front page of the Sun. Virginia wondered and wrote: “Dear Editor, I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says if you see it in the Sun, it’s so. Please tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus?” Ed Mitchell, the Sun‘s editor, gives the assignment of answering Virginia’s letter to Frank Church who, until his wife and baby died last Christmas Eve, was the Sun‘s best and most dependable reporter. Yes Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus is a play for young and old, magically reaffirming life’s highest beauty and joy—”the eternal light with which childhood fills the world.”
Suitable for all ages.

Jeeves at Sea

Presented by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

Thursdays-Saturdays, May 11-13 & 18-20 at 7:30 PM
Sundays, May 14 & 21 at 2:30 PM

What Bertie Wooster has in wealth he lacks in brains (it’s okay, he knows). Fortunately for him, he can always rely on his peerless valet, Jeeves. On holiday in Monaco, Bertie is the pampered guest of the lively Lady Stella, enjoying all that life aboard the Vanderley yacht has to offer. If only Bertie’s pal Crumpet hadn’t possibly (almost certainly) assaulted a visiting prince. In the blink of an eye, Bertie is masquerading as a romance novelist, Crumpet’s posing as his own long-lost twin, and a sinister foreign count is challenging Bertie to a duel over Lady Stella’s chaperone. Will this madcap case of mistaken identities end in Bertie’s doom—or worse, his marriage? Have no fear; Jeeves will sort it all out.
Suitable for older youth and adults.
