Missoula, MT— The Tony winning musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is at MCT March 7th-17th.
Remember when you were in middle school and everything seemed heightened? Winning, losing, fitting in, not fitting in, and utter lack of confidence in your individuality? For audiences watching the six quirky 7th grade contestants in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, that pubescent pandemonium will likely be hilariously familiar!
This “spell-tastic” musical comedy in which “awkward is awesome”. There are mature themes and adolescent humor about puberty and body parts. The actors playing the six spelling bee contestants are all adults, which allows for some comfortable distance from the immediacy of puberty.
This show is also the Missoula Community Theatre’s annual Zero Waste production, in which props, set, and costumes are created from recycled or repurposed materials.
Tickets are available at MCTinc.org; by calling 406-728-PLAY(7529); or at the MCT Box Office, which is open Mon.-Fri. between 9AM and 5PM.
