The Lynn Theatre’s Spring Production

Posted on March 23, 2018

By Holly Walker

Get ready for some fun and laughs as John Tyler Community College’s Theatre program brings The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee to life at The Lynn Theatre.  The show introduces you to six young teens, as they hilariously compete for the spelling bee championship of a lifetime. From touching stories about their home lives to the pout-inducing, soul-crushing sound of the bell that signals a misspelled word, you’ll find yourself routing for these tween spellers as they tackle a series of tough (and potentially made-up) words. 
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee runs April 6 – 15. Performances will be held:

Friday, April 6 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 7 at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 8 at 2:00 p.m.
Friday, April 13 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 14 at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 15 at 2:00 p.m.

All performances will take place in The Lynn Theatre, located in the T Building at Tyler’s Midlothian Campus (800 Charter Colony Parkway)

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at Tyler students are free with a valid JTCC ID.
