Marquette Theatre presents ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,’ Oct. 7-16

Marquette Theatre will present “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” from Friday, Oct. 7, through Sunday, Oct. 16, at the Evan P. and Marion Helfaer Theatre. 

In this wildly funny and touching musical, six awkward tween-age spelling champions compete to be the best. As the audience learns about each contestant, they also learn that winning and losing isn’t everything. Dust off your dictionary and expect to laugh out loud with this fun-filled, Tony Award-winning show, which contains some PG-13 humor.

The show will run:

  • Oct. 7, 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 9 and 16 at 2:30 p.m.

Get tickets online or contact the box office at or (414) 288-7504.
