Weekend Watch: ‘The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee’
Prep sports get the headlines, but if you want to see drama unfold, watch a spelling bee, or rather, get a ticket for Music Theatre Fargo Moorhead’s “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” The Tony Award-winning musical features six actors as adolescents trying to work through various issues and sound out various words. But be ready to laugh at yourself as audience members are occasionally pulled on to the stage to test their spelling. The laughs and gasps start at 7:30 tonight through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday at the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre, 333 4th St. S., Fargo. Tickets range from $10 for students to $15 for adults. (701) 235-6778.
