Playmakers Theater greets fall with a musical production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. From the book by Rachel Sheinkin and directed by Cameron Welch, this unlikeliest of hit musicals is about the unlikeliest of heroes - a quirky but charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place they can stand out, and fit in. Performances at Playmakers Theatre, 19106 Playmakers Road. 8 pm Friday and Saturday, 2 pm Sunday (except Sept. 8). $15 adults, $10 students. (985) 893-1671 or playmakersinc.com.
