February 20 & 21 - SJA Players present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Music and lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin. Tuesday, February 20 & Wednesday, February 21, 2018. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents 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, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. Tickets are $10.00. Location: St. Joan of Arc C.S.S., 3801 Thomas Street, Mississauga. For more information, email email@example.com.
