TheatreWorld’s collection of backdrops to support THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTMAN COUNTY SPELLING BEE are too cool for school! With a wide variety of school scenes from Gymnasiums to High School Hallways, TheatreWorld Backdrops has the perfect stage imagery to convey this hilarious production about spelling. Directors have also veered away from the traditional setting and used our RIPPLED AMERICAN FLAG and SCHOOL EXTERIOR as a fresh way to present this typically one setting script!

Director's Comments

While the entire show takes place inside of a school gymnasium as determined by the script, during our Director’s Round Table discussion, alternative ideas were represented that work just as well in place of, or in addition to the gymnasium.The Spelling Bee is an American tradition originating as far back as the early 1800’s, which makes this as “Americana” as it gets. Keeping that in mind, our directors included theatrical backdrops like RIPPLED AMERICAN FLAG and SOARING EAGLE as scenic options that bring a bit more character and a lot more color to your stage.
