The Lancaster Playhouse

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee




THE LANCASTER PLAYHOUSE and Mark Spangler, Director, are casting  for the  rollicking tale of a clever spelling bee that promises to be  laugh-out-loud hilarious, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” tells the stories of six (6) quirky, over achieving, teens (or kids young at heart)  in a pitch battle with each other in the spelling bee challenge of their life. The kids can be performed by adults playing uncomfortably eccentric, pubescent characters. Each speller singing and dancing to his own “ little drummer”. 

Call backs will be March 21 from 6:30-8:30 if needed.

If you have any questions about the auditions or can't make either of the audition dates please contact the director at [email protected] or text him at 740-974-6666.
