Chaparral High School’s award-winning theater company presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” a warm and funny musical- comedy.

Based on an original improvisational skit created by Rebecca Feldman (lyrics and music by William Finn) this play centers around a fictional spelling bee held in a middle school gym. Six, quirky adolescent spellers compete in the bee, run by three, equally quirky grown-ups.

Performances are to be 7 p.m. on Feb. 9-11 at Chaparral High School’s auditorium, 6935 E. Gold Dust Ave. in Scottsdale. Tickets are $10 for general admission; and $8 with a Chaparral student ID card. This play is appropriate for ages 13 and up.

Tickets can be purchased at the Chaparral High School bookstore as well as the auditorium on the evening of each performance. Box Office will open 30-minutes prior to each show.
