Let the spelling—and the singing—begin. The competition is intense. The words are outrageous. The songs are hilarious as the Lancaster Players present “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin.
Shows will be staged at 8 p.m. November 3, 4, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18, as well as 3 p.m. November 5 and 12, at The Lancaster Playhouse, 361 Chesapeake Drive, White Stone. November 5, 10, 12, 17 and 18 performances are sold out.
The theater and bar will open an hour prior to performances. Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets, visit lancasterplayers.org, or call 435-3776.
