The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (2020) – The Honest Collective

Assistant Lighting Designer & Assistant Technical Director

February 21 – March 7, 2020

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vies 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.
