Putnam-Spelling1Verona High School’s Spotlight Players will present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on March 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the VHS auditorium.

The show, which opened on Broadway in 2005, is a musical comedy about a fictional spelling bee set in the fictitious Putnam Valley Middle School. It’s a mix of quirky contestants, quirky judges and quirky spelling words, plus a Greek-style chorus in the form of the fictitious Putnam County Board of Education.

The production is directed by Fran Young with musical direction by Marsha Schreier. Melody Williams returns as choreographer along with Tom Williams as Technical Director and producer Dana Ahmuty.
