The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

book by Rachel Sheinkin
music & lyrics by William Finn

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 a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.

Please bring sheet music for a song you have already learned. Mankato Playhouse will provide a pianist at auditions to accompany you.
Do not use a song from the show.
Do not sing to taped music or sing a cappella.
You do not have to sing an entire song. Sixteen to 32 measures should be sufficient. We only want to get an idea of how well you can carry a tune and follow accompaniment. If you are “called back” we will ask you to sing some more.
