The Indiana Performing Arts Initiative presents its second season of professional summer stock theatre productions! at Herron High School. Staring June 23 and running through July 2nd (running Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm, and Sundays at 2:30pm), their first production is the Broadway musical comedy hit, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.







Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Beehas charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

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.  How do you spell H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S?

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius!

Their second production, On Broadway, runs July 7 – July 16, again Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 2:30pm.
