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.


CVCT will enforce a mask protocol during our productions until otherwise noted.


We realize it is difficult for some attendees but we are concerned for our actors, staff, and our patrons; we appreciate your cooperation during these difficult times.

Orchestra Audience


I thoroughly enjoyed the CVCT's Cabaret Series USO Salute To The Troops last weekend. Great singing and staging. I know that you were the Director, and the work and effort that you put into it showed 'brightly'! The audience on Friday night was 'totally entertained'! Lot's of Laughs!! Please keep up the good work.
