Key City adds bonus ‘Spelling Bee’ performance

From our friends at Key City Public Theatre in Port Townsend:

“Following a run of sold-out performances at its hit comedy musical ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,’ Key City Public Theatre has added an additional matinée performance this Saturday (October 24) during the closing weekend of the show.

“‘We came the whole way from Edmonds to see the show, and it was worth a ferry boat ride both ways,’ said Stephen Moore, who attended the show last weekend.

“CalBand Members 3led ‘irresistible, riotously funny and remarkably ingenious’ by the New York Times when it opened on Broadway in 2005, Spelling Bee is a Tony Award winning musical comedy that follows six middle-school overachievers as they navigate the chaos of their local spelling bee competition.

“The show is such a blast and it’s a pleasure to give people an extra opportunity to come in and see the show,” says cast member Christa Holbrook, “we don’t want anyone to miss out!”

“‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’, directed by Amy E. Sousa, concludes its run this weekend with 7:30 performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (October 22-24) and 2:30 performances on Saturday and Sunday (October 24 and 25). Tickets are available at keycitypublictheatre.org or at the playhouse box office, 419 Washington Street, Port Townsend, 360-385-KCPT.
