Welcome to the Haworth School Drama Corner

The HPS Middle School students wanted a democratic process and they got it!  Their first choice for the 2018 Spring Musical is SPELLING BEE!

This is a show about Middle Schoolers and it will be performed by Middle Schoolers!  It’s funny, irreverent, heartfelt and features plenty of memorable tunes!  If you saw this show performed at NVD last year, you know how good it is.  Here’s the show description from Ryan Pifher:

An eclectic group of sixth-graders arrives at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings only her best friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee; bold and hyper-allergic speller William Barfee uses his “magic foot” to propel him to greatness; former champion Chip is struggling with his burgeoning puberty; easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he’s smart enough to be a challenger; overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success; and politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her gay dads. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. With an engaging, tuneful score by William Finn and a sweet, funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.
