An eclectic group of pubescent kids vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the teens spell their way through a series of crazy words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves triumphant! At least the losers get a juice box! Great songs, great characters, one hilarious night at the theater!
Stacy Searle, Director; Mark Femia, Music Director, Zac Holman, Choreographer and Jasmine Cosma, Production Stage Manager

Chip Tolentino An athletic, social, boy scout and champion of the Twenty-Fourth Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, he returns to defend his title, but he finds puberty hitting at an inopportune moment. C4 - B5
Logainne Schwartzandgrunenierre (Schwartzy) Logainne is the youngest and most politically aware speller, often making comments about current political figures. She is driven by internal and external pressure, but above all by a desire to win to make her two fathers proud. She is somewhat of a neat freak, speaks with a lisp, and will be back next year. A3 - F5

Marcy Park A recent transfer from Virginia, Marcy placed ninth in last year's nationals. She speaks six languages, is a member of all-American hockey, a championship rugby player, plays Chopin and Mozart on multiple instruments, sleeps only three hours a night, hides in the bathroom cabinet, and is getting very tired of always winning.

Olive Ostrovsky A young newcomer to competitive spelling. Her mother is in an ashram in India, and her father is working late, as usual, but he is trying to come sometime during the bee.

B3 - F5

He is infatuated with Rona Lisa Peretti, but she does not return his affections. Mitch Mahoney The Official Comfort Counselor. An ex-convict, Mitch is performing his community service with the Bee, and hands out juice boxes to losing students. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better. E4 - A5

MAN OF LA MANCHA
Aug. 16 – Sept. 10, 2023
Written by Dale Wasserman; Music by Mitch Leigh; Lyrics by Joe Darion; Original Production Staged by Albert Marre/Originally Produced by Albert W. Selden and Hal James
Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular musicals! Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ masterwork Don Quixote, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical! Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself "Don Quixote" and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world. The rousing, Spanish-inflected score includes the classic numbers “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him” and “Little Bird.” A true classic, Man of La Mancha is an incredible, inspiring show for the ages!
