Auditions for 3 roles in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Twelfth Night Productions
About the project and the company
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
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.

Vaccinations are now required for all performers eligible for a COVID vaccine. All actors that audition for TNP productions will be asked for their vaccination status on audition forms. All vaccine-eligible people who are cast and hired for TNP productions must show proof of vaccination prior to the start of rehearsal or first day of work. This is to protect all others involved in the productions.
All cast members will be required to be masked via face masks, shields, bandannas or scarfs during all rehearsals. Masks and face shields can be provided on request by TNP. All actors will be required to wear masks backstage when they are not performing. At this time, we do not plan to wear masks or shields during adult performances.
