Bronxville High School will present “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” as its spring musical, to be held outdoors June 4-5. Under the direction of choral director Pamela Simpson, the show features a talented cast and crew of students.
The musical tells the story of six prepubescents who compete in a regional spelling bee and are tested with words that range from the familiar, “crayon,” to the esoteric, “syzygy” to the frankly nonexistent, “catterjunes.” But correct spelling is not the only pressure facing the contestants. They must also navigate the expectations and quirks of parents, families and spelling bee administrators.
The performances will take place on the front lawn of the Bronxville School on Friday, June 4 at 6 p.m. and Saturday, June 5 at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. For ticket information, please visit:
