FEBRUARY 7 - 23, 2014
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Additional Material by Jay Reiss
Directed by Matt Giles
Music Direction by Justin Beal

Follow six young people on their hilarious journey to realize their dream—to become a spelling bee champion! Fraught with the woes of puberty, these youngsters struggle to become the best, but ultimately learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and nominated for many others, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will leave a smile on everyone’s face as this quirky yet charming cast of outsiders demonstrate how they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

Advisory: While the overwhelming tone and feeling of "Spelling Bee" is innocent and playful, the musical does include several words and some references that parents may find inappropriate for children. Therefore, the producers are giving it a PG-13 rating.

TICKETS:
$40 - DIAMOND | $35 - GOLD | $30 - SILVER

MEET THE CAST!

Lindsey Larson (Rona) is ticketed to be playing a bucket list role in this show! 2013 credits include Jerry Springer: The Opera, ThanksKilling: The Musical, and Les Mis at Balagan, It's a Good Day For Peggy Lee with Purple Phoenix Productions, and It Happened At The World's Fair with 5th Avenue's AMT. She also had the opportunity to make her directorial debut with Floyd Collins at STAGEright! Thanks to my unconditionally supportive family and all who worked to make this show happen!

Tadd Morgan (Panch) is delighted to be back on SMT's stage in this 2014 musical sandwich! Spelling Bee and Young Frankenstein are the bread, these tremendous casts are the delectable filling, and you, delicious audience, are bringing all the fixings! We hope you enjoy!

Evan Woltz (Barfee) is delighted to be part of 25th Annual…Spelling Bee and to be performing with Seattle Musical Theatre for the first time! You may have also seen him recently in Balagan Theatre’s productions of Jerry Springer the Opera; or Thankskilling the Musical! Also Spring Awakening; Dr. Horrible; or The Full Monty. Other shows include Unexpected Productions’ Nietzsche the Musical; The Yellow Wood, Razia’s Shadow and A New Brain with Contemporary Classics; Gutenburg! The Musical! and Bat Boy at ArtsWest. Special thanks to Mom, Dad, and Erin for their unyielding love and support… even when it means shaking a magical appendage at strangers. Twice on Sundays.

Kelsey Hull (Olive Ostrovsky) is thrilled to be making her Seattle Musical Theatre debut, and Seattle area theater debut, in one of her favorite shows. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a BA in musical theater in 2012 and this past summer was seen in all three of the Leavenworth Summer Theater shows. Kelsey can't explain how happy it makes her to have a life so opposite of the character which she portrays. She's been blessed with the most supportive parents a person could ask for and this show is dedicated to them for never leaving her to wonder, "Who will be my chaperone?" Enjoy the show everyone!

Chelsea LeValley (Marcy Park) Since landing in the PNW by bus from Ohio a year ago this fall she has happily been working and playing as an Actor/Teaching Artist/Director all across the city of Seattle.

Special thanks to Matt & Justin for giving me the chance to relive my childhood all over again!
