THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
PROGRESS ENERGY CENTER—Let's review some words we learned in middle school—puberty, P-U-B-E-R-T-Y, puberty; awkward, A-W-K-W-A-R-D, awkward. Broadway Series South's The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee highlights both aspects of that murky era between the sweet simplicity of elementary school and the budding independence of high school. Taking its inspiration from a play by improv comedy group The Farm, the Broadway musical maintains an element of improv by choosing four audience members each night to participate in the show—a voluntary experience, based on pre-performance interviews and questionnaires from willing audience members.
