San Marin High School will present the Tony Award-winning musical comedy, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” on Oct. 25-27 and Nov. 1-3 at the Emily Gates Student Center at San Marin High School.

Audience members can join the cast of the production, which is directed by Pat Nims with choreography by San Marin student Caitlyn Keaney, vocal direction by Emily Gates and musical direction by Allison McIvor.

In the musical comedy, six young people, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.

Before every performance, four audience members are recruited to participate onstage as guest spellers. Each new foursome guarantees a new set of hilarious and unexpected experiences – making every performance unique.

The San Marin Musical Theater Workshop includes more than 60 students, teachers and parents. Many of the parts are double cast, which means that students playing featured parts trade off on alternate performances.

Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door, and are available at San Marin High School or at Performances begin at 8 p.m. on Oct. 25 and 26 and Nov. 1 and 2 and at 2 p.m. on Oct. 27 and Nov. 3.
