25th Anniversary Putnam County Spelling Bee                    (Musical Comedy) Dates: June 10-26, 2022 (9 Performances)                              25th Anniversary Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hillareous musical with an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vieing 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, a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite.
Closed For The Holidays (Comedy) Dates: November 4-20, 2022 (9 Performances) After a blizzard shuts down the roads on Christmas Eve eve, a motley crew of travelers find themselves stranded at the local community center. From the lovelorn drama teacher with a bus full of students, to the quarrelsome couple on the way to their wedding, to the overeager Sheriff ready for some real criminal action, everyone has their own troubles to untangle. But to have a happy holiday, they're going to need a miracle--or seven, to be exact. A spirited and heartwarming comedy with a healthy dash of Christmas magic.
