Auditions for 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Playhouse on Park
For Tickets, Contact: N/A

Playhouse on Park will be holding auditions for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee by William Finn and Rachel Shienkin. This production is being directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Susan Haefner. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a Tony Award winning musical comedy about six quirky adolescent spellers who compete at a local Spelling Bee run by three equally quirky adults.

Four audience members are also invited on stage every night to compete as well, allowing for improvisation and general hilarity. Versatile Union/Non-union actor/singers are encouraged to audition (movement, improvisational and comedic skills are a huge plus for all roles). Local auditions will be held Sunday, March 9th. All actors are paid. Rehearsals begin May 20th. Performances run June 11th through July 20th. If interested, please email Sean Harris, Artistic Director at [email protected] with your headshot and resume, and he will set you up with an audition time as well as send you the sides for the audition. In addition, please prepare 32 bars from or in the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided. For a detailed description of the available roles, visit
