August 11 - 28, 2016

We are offering 3 different cast;

All ranging in ages of 12- college,

with 1 weekend of performances for each cast!


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 life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.


A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is delightful den of comedic genius. The small cast and unit set make this a perfect option for high schools or community theatres. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite.








Perry studied at American Dramatic Academy for musical theatre. While in L.A., he trained with Jonathan Ingstrom, choreographer for a National Tour of 42nd Street and Chryssie Whitehead of the Broadway Revival of A Chorus Line (Kristine, “Sing!”). Since then he has choreographed and directed numerous shows at local schools, the Kroc Center, as well as YAT. As an actor, Perry has performed all over San Diego for companies such as The Welk Resort, Starlight Theatre and Lambs Players Theatre. In addition, he founded and directs his own award winning A Cappella Group "SoundWave" at San Diego State University. Perry loves being apart of this wonderful company; YAT has allowed him to express himself and his creativity.
