OWLs Fly to Lanesboro for Theater: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

  • Commonweal Theatre 208 Parkway Ave N Lanesboro, MN, 55949 United States (map)

Holding with tradition, we will travel to the Lanesboro Commonweal Theatre for a fabulous production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”. This hilarious musical celebrates the agony & ecstasy of spelling bees. In this charming musical, quirky middle-schoolers battle for the ultimate title: spelling champ of Putnam County! With each new word, the earnest combatants reveal their passions, fears and dreams through hilarious and touching tunes. (And it’s not just about the spelling: the adult cast is ultra geek-chic in their middle school costumes!) This not-to-be-missed outing will take place on Friday, August 24. We will leave from the church at 4pm. We will start the evening with dinner at one of Lanesboro’s fine establishments followed by the play. Dinner is on your own, the play is $30 per person if we have 10 or more people. You can pay Brian for the tickets the night of the outing. Please let Brian Narveson (608-526-9700 or owls@firstlu.org) know by Monday night, August 20 if you plan to attend.
