Nicely Theatre Group Presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”

the berman center for performing arts 6600 W Maple Rd, West Bloomfield

Nicely Theatre Group presents its first outdoor musical production, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, July 28-31. Tickets are $25 per person and are available for purchase at nicelytheatre.org. Seating will be outdoors, general admission. Ticket buyers will BYOCoB (Bring Your Own Chair or Blanket!). An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vies 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. The Nicely cast includes Erin Johnson as Olive Ostrovsky, Alexa Carollo as Rona Lisa Peretti, Michael McKiddy as Vice Principal Panch, N’Jeri Nicholson as Mitch Mahoney, Mitchell J. Hardy as William Barfee, Lauren Landman as Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre, Maryanna Lauter as Marcy Park, Alec Diem as Leaf Coneybear, Jason Bowen as Chip Tolentino and Nic Folson as Jesus. Understudies are Kayla Smith, Olivia Paryaski, Michael Phair, and Jackson Meade.
