Just yesterday I was contacted by actor Jonathan Tupanjanin and he is a proud member of 

Enceladus Theatre Group
 A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is committed to presenting vivid, imaginative, and creative works of live theatre. 

 I actually had the pleasure of talking to Jonathan about the upcoming show. I learned that all of the actors in this production are Whittier College Alumni or current student of Whittier College. I could hear the excitement in Jonathan's voice when we talked about the show. He says this is a Comedy / Musical / Audience participation all around great time event. Humor leaning toward young adults and adults "PG-13" He actually got me excited about the show. I don't get the opportunity to get out and see live performances very often and this seems like it would be a great opportunity to do so. I hope you all will to. This is also a great opportunity to experience the Ruth B Shannon Center at Whittier College.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Six awkward spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything.

Winner of the TONY and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spel...ling 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. 

A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is delightful den of comedic genius. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite.

Featuring, Charlotte Bailey, Molly Cunningham, Max Gallo, Stella June, Christian Mohn, Ruben Sanchez, Courtney Smith, Jonathan Tupanjanin, and Andrew Zubiate.
