We are excited to bring a musical back to Whispering Pines this winter. Join us for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Feb 10,11 & 18 in the evening and Feb 19 for a matinee. Details on dinner and show times are below. Due to some adult humor and content we are suggesting a PG-13 for this show.
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 life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never 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.
Because we have to put in numbers for food preparation, we will be closing ticket sales 3 days before each show. Please get your tickets before hand as no tickets will be sold at the door.
