I am going to resist the temptation to spell out FANTASTIC or HILARIOUS, even though both words perfectly express my feelings about The 25th Annual Putnam County SPELLING BEE.

Assembled on stage is the most eccentric and lovable group of spelling nerds that you ever want to meet. Extremely serious spellers who have entered this contest for a variety of reasons reveal their inner doubts and fears while tenaciously clinging to the one thing they know they have under control – words. And just to keep this motley crew on the path to spelling stardom, there’s a previous spelling bee winner, a vice principal with a questionable past, and a parolee doing his community service. And if that’s not enough to pique your interest, there are a plethora of delightful surprises that I won’t reveal. Experience them yourself by going to see The 25th Annual Putnam County SPELLING BEE. It is guaranteed to boost your spirit. Spelling has never been such fun!
