The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
From the winning combo who brought you Sweet Charity, Bruiser Theatre Company returns to the MAC with the hilarious hit musical comedy – Spelling Bee.
You’ll laugh out loud at this story of six young people, overseen by adults who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, vying to win the spelling championship of a lifetime.
A quirky cast of outsiders, for whom the Bee is their chance to finally shine, learn that winning isn’t everything and losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
This Tony-award winning show proved a hit with critics and audiences alike on Broadway, praised for its charming cast, catchy numbers and hilarious script.
A Bruiser and MAC co-production, you won’t want to miss it – only at the MAC.

The MAC says
“If you like Glee, you’ll love this. Spelling Bee is a gem – a real feel-good show, with lots of humour and more than a whiff of nostalgia for those heady school days.
The show contains one mild adult reference, so perhaps most suitable for over 12yrs – but as ever, we’re happy for you to use your discretion to decide if a show is suitable. Look out for our special under 16s ticket at just £9.50.
