On Saturday night we went to Taylor’s high school’s musical production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It is a musical comedy about pretty much exactly what the title says: a middle school spelling bee. Despite the setting I wouldn’t consider it a child musical (Productions use adults for all the parts) and we both found it very entertaining. A main aspect of the show is that they pull people from the audience to participate. When they started to call faculty onstage I think Taylor was a little excited/concerned that he would be called. He was not which I appreciated because I didn’t want to sit by myself for an hour.
The students were very entertaining and it was fun to see some of Taylor’s kids be a part of the show. It’s a great way to get our artistic culture in by going to a very cheap but very well put together musical.
