Spelling Bee comes to Chanticleers Theatre
Submitted By Suzan Lorraine
Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
Lead by award winning director Sue Ellen Nelsen, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. Come see the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
The Tony Award winning show is coming to life on the stage at Chanticleers Theatre in Castro Valley May 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26, June 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m., and matinees on May 20, 27, June 3 and 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $24 general admission, and $20 for seniors (60+) and students. A Bargain Night will be offered on May 12 with all tickets $18.
Details, tickets, and reservations are available at chanticleers.org or by calling (510) SEE-LIVE.
