THEATRE: Competition is heating up in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee contest with Act II




This Thursday and Friday (Feb 14 and 15) Act II perform laugh-out-loud musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the South Holland Centre, writes Patrick Walsh.

Last week we introduced you to three of the six ‘contestants’ in the play, which follows a small group of students hoping to be crowned the winner of the ‘Bee’.

The final three are Olive Ostrovsky, a word lover. She is a shy newcomer to the spelling bee. Her parents are often absent from her life as her mom’s in an ashram in India and her dad is often at work. She states that her best friend is her dictionary.
