The opening night of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is this Friday at Stephens College. Watch as the story unfolds of six kids who are preparing for the championship of a lifetime, hoping to never hear the dreaded buzzer signifying a mistake.

The musical will open at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a matinee set for 2 p.m. Sunday. If you can’t make it this weekend, the show also is set for 7:30 p.m. March 23-24.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for all students and seniors, 65 or older. The show is free for all college students with a student ID. Tickets can be purchased online, by emailing or call 573-876-7199. For more information on the musical, visit
