The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. SPELLING BEE is appropriate for teens – up

GPAC’s production of SPELLING BEE features a regional cast of talented adults, playing 6th grade students, on stage at the Historic Uptown Theater in downtown Grand Prairie. For cast information and show details visit the Grand Prairie Arts Council online at
