Musical is hilarious tale of overachievers' angst

Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre is making a special offer for its new production, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," which opens tomorrow at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore.

For performances Oct. 22, 23 and 24, tickets are buy one adult ticket and get another one for free for those ordered by phone. Tickets much be purchased by 6 p.m. tonight.

The musical is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

The Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre production is directed by Carol Hovey, with vocal director CaryLitchford, choreographer Morgan Breedveld and musical director Jo Anne Fosselman.

To take advantage of the special offer, call the Bankhead ticket office at 373-6800 and use the code: MAGIC FOOT. Bankhead fees will still apply, and the offer is not good for previously purchased tickets or with other offers. The box office, 2400 First St. in Livermore, is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays/Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, Oct. 22 through Nov. 7.
