From August 9 to August 13, the performers will be taking audiences right back to their childhood in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

This is a continuation of their 70th birthday celebrations where they will be branching out to a new venue at The Whitty Theatre.

Director Emily Burton comments: “I am beyond excited to be bringing this show to the stage with EBOS. We are so fortunately spoiled with talent that we have an incredible cast bringing this wonderful musical to life.

They have all been working so hard and I can’t wait for you to hear the powerful and beautiful harmonies and see the sweet, odd and funny characters they have perfected.

I am so thankful to have such a fantastic production team by my side, Sophie Horrox our Choreographer who has really gotten the creative juices flowing and Seann Wilkinson our Musical Director who brings so much enjoyment to our rehearsals.”
