Tickets still available for The Spelling Bee at The Pullo Center

April 24, 2009

Tickets are still on sale for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, the Tony award-winning musical, coming at 7:30 p.m. April 29 to the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) at Penn State York for one show only!


In The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. This tuneful, offbeat and at times heartwarming show offers audience members the opportunity (strictly voluntary) to become part of the action as on-stage spellers.

“Can you spell i-r-r-e-s-i-s-t-i-b-l-e? Spelling Bee is riotously funny and remarkably ingenious. Gold stars all around,” said The New York Times. In the Wall Street Journal, Spelling Bee was called “perfect in every possible way – that rarity of rarities, a super-smart musical that is also a bona fide crowd-pleaser. An ingenious blend of simplicity and sophistication, it’s not merely funny, it's wise.”

With seating for just over 1,000, The Pullo Center offers an intimate venue with full theatre capabilities. The Pullo Center opened at the campus in August 2005.
