The magic behind the Spelling Bee

Spelling Bee hidden agendas

The Buzz on the Bees

South Boston News
In HCLT’s upcoming production of the musical 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Ms. Mona Lisa Peretti, played by Alison Streeter, tries to keep the Spelling Bee going, but it’s hard to keep these contestants focused and calm. Here Marcy Park, played by Sharron Garrett, psyches the other girls out with her karate moves. Logainne SchwartzandGruneiere, played by Kara Stone, is feeling quite anxious, while young Olive Ostrovsky, played by Lauren Cole, doesn’t seem to be bothered a bit.
Middle school anxieties are infamous … raging hormones, trying to fit in, breaking away from parent controls to name a few. While those years are notoriously full of struggles and sometimes painful self-discovery for most adolescents, it’s great fun to remember those years from the safe distance of adulthood. Halifax County Little Theatre’s upcoming production of the Tony Award winning musical 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee touches on many of those classic teenage struggles, and they’re betting audiences will recognize and remember some of the same issues portrayed on stage.
