Dinner theatre spells F-U-N-N-Y

Audience laughter will drown out spelling eliminations

Audience members should bring their dictionaries to the Fort Gordon Dinner Theatre for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a one-act musical comedy that centers around a fictional spelling bee set in at Putnam Valley Middle School.

Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally-quirky grown-ups. But three or four real audience members will be invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters. During the 2005 Tony Awards, former Presidential candidate Al Sharpton competed.

This is the first time that The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has been performed in the Augusta area. The show will run Feb. 12-13, 19-20, and 25-27. Tickets are $39 general; $36 active duty E7 and above, seniors, military retirees and DA civilians; $30 active duty E7 and below and $25 show only.
