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.

The Theatre Arts Department Proudly Presents

The FirebugsTHE FIREBUGS, by Max Frisch, Translation by Mordecai Gorelik 
"A Morality Play Without a Moral"

THE FIREBUGS, translated by Mordecai Gorelik and presented off Broadway in 1963, is one of Max Frisch's most provocative and brilliant plays.  Whether the play is regarded as a hilarious, almost slapstick farce or as a satirical attack against complacency depends on the point of view one brings to it.  Using dramatic techniques as old as allegory and as new as the Theatre of the Absurd, Frisch reveals the actions and attitudes of people confronted with a powerful and ruthless enemy.

Directed by Ed Douglas
