Lamb’s Presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” – June 4-Aug. 18

The Hilarious, Moving, Tony Award Winning Musical — a Perfect Summer Delight!

Lamb’s Players Theatre announces the opening of its production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” from June 4 through August 18.

“While its fun clicks with the energy and joie de vivre of youth, it also reveals individual stories of parental expectations, the pressure of performance, and the surprises of puberty and its rush of hormones. All in a tasty delight that makes for a perfect summer musical,” says director Robert Smyth.
