UPCOMING EVENTS IN THE ENCORE ROOM AT ABT
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Winning and Losing Isn’t Everything
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
Next to Normal
July 10 – 19, 2020
They’re a “normal” family: Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. And yet their lives are anything but normal – the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.
