Take Spelling Bee to the Fringe!

Following a sell-out run in Colchester, Mad Hatter Productions have their hearts set on taking 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee' to the Edinburgh Fringe as a debut visit for the company!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious new musical by William Finn. The group have wanted to perform it since its release years ago, and pounced on it the second rights were available for amateurs! It was received with rave reviews and is being supported in its trip to Scotland by some audience members who loved it so much! It follows the journey of 6 quirky kids and 3 quirky adults during the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Through songs and flashbacks we find out more and more about the kids, their stories, their strategies and their pasts. An unlikely hit musical made up of unlikely heroes!
