Music and Lyrics by William Finn

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee follows an eclectic group of 6 mid-pubescents as they vie for the spelling bee championship of a lifetime. An audience charmer with its effortless wit and humor,...Spelling Bee features a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced (sometimes irreverent) crowd pleaser, and a delightful den of comedic genius. Can you spell H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S?

The Laramie Project

November 3 - 20, 2022
Shasta Hall, Playwrights Theatre

By Moisés Kaufman
Directed by Casey McClellan

In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie in the aftermath of the killing, conducting more than 200 interviews, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a deeply moving theatrical experience; a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Content warning: Adult language, usage of slurs, and violence; audience discretion advised.

Running in rep with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in the Playwrights Theatre,
The Laramie Project runs November 3-6 and 16-20.

Tickets: $18 general | $15 seniors/SARTA | $12 students (any school/3+)
