I play MARCY PARK in the Sierra Madre Playhouse’s production of 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! Come and see me! A eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime! While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories of their home-life, the tweens spell their way through a series of words hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-unaffirming “ding” of the bell signifying a spelling error. A riotous ride complete with audience participation.
In short, this is — bar none — the best version of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” I have seen. It is charming, heart-felt, active and engaging.” –Frances Baum Nicholson
