The Xavier University theatre department took a big risk when they decided to experiment with repertory theater, with having three shows performed over two weeks. The undertaking is an amazing accomplishment for the department.
Xavier Theatre will present a production of the musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” from Oct. 22-Oct 24. The show, based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin, tells the complex story of a group of middle school students’ journey through competing in the regional spelling bee. It is under the direction of Xavier’s director of theatre, Stephen Skiles.
