Barcelona-based English-language theatre company Jocular Theatre is back with a Tony Award-winning musical comedy, 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee'. Set in Putnam Valley Middle School in Anywhere, USA, the play revolves around six vibrant, hopeful misfits as they vie for the prize of best speller. Jocular Theatre's 15th Barcelona stage production (and 3rd musical) promises to put another stitch in your side with the company’s trademark non-stop onstage action, larger than life characterizations, and the added bonus of a top-notch live orchestra.
Leave your expectations at the door because you've never been to a spelling bee quite like this one. There will be mayhem, there will be triumph, and someone will karate-chop a piece of wood in half in this nerd's-eye view of the wonderfully traumatic yet unavoidably touching road to adolescence.
