Spelling Bee may be set in a school gymnasium, but other school or municipal settings will work well for this show, too. TheatreWorld's HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM is a natural fit, or you can use the THEATRE BACKSTAGE to set the bee in an unadorned high school auditorium. Consider the RED AND GOLD DRAPES or any of the Faux Drape collection for a more neutral setting, including the PATRIOTIC HEADER and LEGS to frame your bare stage, which will leave plenty of room for spelling antics. For a more abstract choice, consider TheatreWorld's CHALKBOARD scenic backdrop. With so many options to choose from for this hilarious show, your scenic design is sure to B-E-E a winner!

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Backdrops

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. 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 a delightful den of comedic genius.
