This spring, the Summerville High School theater department is performing “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Despite the long and seemingly simple title, the play is sure to entertain everyone who comes to watch it. The performances are on April 11,12, and 13. Admission is free for district employees, $5 dollars for children, seniors and students and finally $10 for adults.

The interesting difference in this show and the previous musicals put on by the Summerville theater program is that this one involves audience participation. This is the first time that the audience will be actively involved in a show at Summerville. Audience members will be asked to participate in the spelling bee and will be entwined with the plot of the show.

Another unique aspect of this show is that the understudies will have their own performance. They will be performing at the Saturday matinee that starts at 2:30 pm. This is the first time that the understudies will all be able to perform together.

The purpose of the understudy performance is because the cast for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is surprisingly small. The understudy performance allows for double the amount of students to perform and gain experience.

The cast portrays six students who are all competing for a chance to win the spelling bee. Each character has different goals and motives for being at the spelling bee. The characters are relatable so each viewer has the opportunity to relate with someone onstage, whether they are into musicals or not.

The theater department has worked for countless hours to make sure that that this musical is the best that it can be. It will be one of the most exciting, interesting and funny performances that theater department has put on in a while. They hope to make lasting memories for their audience and for the future thespians of Summerville High School.
