Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime.   The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

City of Angels

Presented by Theatre by Theatre by the Bay

August 7th - August 30th, 2014

A Tony Award winning musical about a disillusioned crime novelist (Stine) who adapts his latest novel into a screenplay as his marriage falls apart. At the same time, we see the adventures of his detective (Stone), presented as if in a black-and-white film. The detective has a way with women but is forever haunted by the one who got away in this musical spoof of film noir crime movies and Hollywood's treatment of writers.   

City of Angels is two shows in one. It is the interweaving of two plots, one dealing with the writing of a screenplay in the legendary Hollywood of the '40's; the other, the enactment of that screenplay. This double feature quality leads to many other unique production values, the most notable being the fact that City of Angels is perhaps the only “color coded” shows any theatre audience is likely to see. A murder mystery/comedy not to be missed.
