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.

Preparation & Requirements:
Students must be signed up for 2 weeks of summer camp, prior to auditioning. See camps here.
Prepare 1 song, either a 32-bar up-tempo or a 16 bar ballad (ie. 1-minute or less) of a Broadway showtune in the style of the show you are auditioning for.
Make sure to find or record an accompaniment track (YouTube usually has a bunch!). Please send your track to us before June 1st so we have it ready to play (email to: firstname.lastname@example.org). How to send your track:
- Send us the YouTube link with the exact time stamps of when you sing. (ie. “I sing from 0:57 to 1:55.”).
- OR if you can/know how, send us your exact, edited cut as an mp3 file
- Be sure you’ve sung with your track so you know it’s in the right key and are comfortable singing with it.
Let us know any questions!
Safety at Theatre 360
We have strategically outlined a plan for camps and productions that includes both virtual and in-person activities. We have modified programming, protocols, and timing of camps. Theatre 360 follows the guidance from local health officials. Your family’s safety remains our first priority. The productions have been chosen specifically for their ability to social distance and the obvious, they are great shows! All rehearsals will be in person with masks on, and following all safety measures. These shows allow us to still put on a production with our students but allow creative Covid-19 staging. They are smaller casts that can rehearse separately for many of the rehearsals. We hope you will join us as we know our students are needing a creative outlet while staying the course on safety first.
