fall play

As Tom and Huck become young men, they face several life and death challenges which test their courage and moral conviction. 

 

On a summer sojourn north to the free state of Iowa, Tom and Huck face a confounding mystery filled with mistaken identities, a mysterious ghost, and a diabolical plot to silence the town's lone voice of compassion and justice.

Along the way, Tom and Huck confront their past mistakes, their current confusion, and their future potential. 

The play is meant to be performed by a diverse cast in the manner of "Hamilton" in order to amplify its significant themes.

Written and directed by Walter Wolfe for his 30th year as Hannon Theatre's Artistic Director.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

An eclectic group of 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. And only one speller leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.

A riotous ride, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
