One event on August 19, 2018 at 5:00pm

This eccentric production is full of energy, and the characters will keep you guessing at how they will pull off the next play. This family friendly outdoor performance is surely a unique Shakespeare in the Park experience!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

September 28 @ 8:00 pm - October 6 @ 2:00 pm

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. This play may have some mature themes and minor language.
