Tickets on sale now for ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’!
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee makes its way to the Lynn Theatre at John Tyler Community College's Midlothian Campus! An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie 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.
Tickets available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3372275
$10 for general admission or free with a valid JTCC student ID.
Performances are April 6th-8th and April 13th-15th
