SSCC Theatre announces auditions for THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE

newsauditions2013bSSCC Theatre is pleased to announce their upcoming auditions for the summer production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

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 life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never 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. (The roles of the children are played by adults.)

Auditions, open to community members and students, will be held on Friday, June 5 at 6:30 p.m. in The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium at the Central Campus of Southern State Community College, in Hillsboro, OH. Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a comedic one to two-minute monologue, as well as a short musical comedy song. Those interested on working in available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions. If you’re interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, please contact Rainee Angles ( to schedule an alternate audition date prior to June 5.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, directed by Rainee Angles and musically directed by David White, will be performed July 24 – 26. For more information about The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, available roles, and a rehearsal schedule, please visit:

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY opens tonight!


SSCC Theatre presents August: Osage County

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2008 Tony Award for Best Play

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
