The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was performed May 20 and May 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Learn more about the show
"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

An incredible group of student performers and technicians in Brooks Firetrail Theatre pulled out all the stops to bring this pop culture phenomenon to life.
News Story: Audiences "Blown Away" by Production of Rent!
"Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Rent: School Edition follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical." — MTIshows.com

It's a dark and stormy night, and you've been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead. So whodunnit? Brooks Firetrail Theatre served up the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they raced to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacked up.
