Join six adolescent outsiders who are vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is coming to Pierce County this week. The award-winning musical comedy, performed by Pacific Lutheran University’s Theatre Program will be sure to knock your s-o-c-k-s off. The show runs May 9 (Student Preview), 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 7:30 pm and May 19 at 2 pm in the Studio Theater of the Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
Want to show off your spelling talents? Four audience volunteers are recruited before each performance to participate on-stage as guest spellers, making each performance as unique as the one before it. The willing contestants are chosen through a careful vetting process, utilizing pre-show lobby interviews and audience questionnaires.
Tickets can be purchased at the Campus Concierge at 253-535-7411 or at the door. They are $8 General Admission and $5 for PLU Community.
