Barnstormers are delighted to announce that they will be returning to the Barn
(this time actually inside the theatre!) in October this year with the hilarious
smash hit musical comedy 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee'. They will
be staging four performances from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th October and
hope that many of you will come and join in the fun and support The Barnstormers'
continuing efforts to raise funds for our DRIP charity project.
spelling bee (competition) is a modern day American phenomenon that has been brought
to the stage in this quirky Tony Award winning musical comedy. It tells the story
of six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely
managed to escape childhood themselves, and who learn that winning isn't everything
and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
hilarious tale of overachievers' angst that chronicles the experiences of six
adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. It is
the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet
charming cast of outsiders for whom the spelling bee is the one place where they
can stand out and fit in at the same time.
show is being produced and directed by Richard Allen, who is joined by Barn regulars,
Colin Warnock as Musical Director and Fran Newitt as Associate Director / Choreographer.
is the first time the musical has been produced at the Barn Theatre and we've
no doubt that The Barnstormers will once again be pulling out all the stops. They
promise us a unique, funny and memorable evening's entertainment with perhaps
just a few unexpected star turns from some lucky audience volunteers!
