The White Theatre at The J has announced the cast for their Winter production of THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE with music and lyrics by William Finn.
Directed by Steven Eubank with music direction by Pam Williamson, the production features Korrie Murphy (Rona Lisa Peretti), Jayson Chandley (Douglas Panch), Colin Rohach (William Barfee), Sam Hesman (Chip Tolentino), Erin Huffman (Logainne SchwartzandGrubenierre), Jaden Tatge (Leaf Coneybear), Julia Masterson (Marcy Park), Madelyn Padget (Olive Ostrovsky), and Raheem Fielder-Bey (Mitch Mahoney).
“This delightful musical captures the comedic side of stress and self-doubt as these pre-pubescent characters launch into the pressure and excitement of competing in the Spelling Bee,” comments Eubank. “The show is charming and funny, at times hilarious, with many sweet and poignant moments while these precocious ‘kids’ struggle to maintain composure and navigate the demands of the Bee, budding friendships and their lives.”
THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTRY SPELLING BEE runs February 3rd – 18th and is recommended for ages 13 and older. For more information visit thejkc.
