The spelling bee is a recent topic of conversation, what with the National Spelling Bee wrapping up at the end of last month. This weekend, the Turnpike Players treat us to performances of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, with a cast of local teenagers and adults, including Emily Stagg, who was featured in the 2002 documentary Spellbound after making it to the national finals. Each performance is different due to the interactive nature of this show.
