The 105th season of the Players of Utica opens Friday, September 15th with a raucous, interactive production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

The Players of Utica describes the show this way:

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.

There's only one winner. Or, two, if you count the audience, which gets to participate in every show.
