Auditions for MCP’s Musical Putnam County Spelling Bee

January 12, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – January 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

The Middlebury Community Players will hold auditions for high-school and adult actors for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” on Saturday, January 12 and Sunday, January 13 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Middlebury Fitness, 175 Wilson Rd., Middlebury. Registration begins at 1 p.m. Please come to only one audition.

Auditioners will learn and sing a 16-bar cut, read from the script, and learn and perform a short dance combination. No special preparation is required. Teen auditioners must be at least 14 years old and in high school. Those younger than 18 years old must have a parent or guardian signature on their audition form.

Winner of two 2005 Tony Awards, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” explores the many challenges of growing up through the lens of a middle-school spelling bee. Six awkward tween competitors spell their way to self-discovery, while three quirky adults run the show. This musical is fast-paced and funny, with catchy songs and clever dialogue, and has elements of improv and surprise: At each performance, four audience volunteers are called on stage to spell along with the actors.

Full audition details and an audition form are available at or visit the Middlebury Community Players’ Facebook page.
