Musical in Rocklin kicks off October 25th




Rocklin, CA- On Friday, October 25, 2013 at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus Dietrich Theatre, the Sierra College Drama Department, directed by Professor Debra Hammond, will hold their opening night performance of the musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. 

Synopsis:

 At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, six young people in the throes, of puberty overseen by grown-ups who have barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and yet fit in at the same time.

  • Friday, October 25, at 8:00 pm
  • Saturday, October 26 at 8:00 pm
