The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be performed May 20 and May 21 at 7:30 p.m.
"An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming 'ding' of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box." —MTIshows.com
We're excited to present this fast-paced comedy in the Center for the Arts.
Students develop and perform dramatic pieces based on original material and develop critical and analytical skills through script study and performance observations. Students are able to work on three main theater productions each year:
- a play
- a musical
- a nontraditional project.
The nontraditional projects are shows designed to give students opportunities that they would not find in the standard season or at other institutions. For example, students may take on the role of playwright, director or designer, or we may chose to do a selection of works that highlight specific talents which would otherwise go unnoticed.
In addition to the main season, several smaller showcases are produced throughout the year. Formal course work and independent studies in acting and directing are available to all students.
With the exciting news that one of her artworks was recently selected for an international exhibition, Art Department Chair Babs Wheelden is living her motto.
For her theater independent, Delaney Eiland '22 produced, cast, starred in and directed the musical "The Mad Ones."
Brooks School's Firetrail Theatre didn't just bring the rock musical to life, they connected it to real life and a bigger picture of health equity in the United States today.
