The 25th Annul Putnam County Spelling Bee is a unique musical comedy that encourages the audience to participate in the Putnam County spelling bee. Today, you can catch it at the Circle in the Square Theatre with your Manhattan rent a car.
This is the story of six young people who are trying to grow up, but who have parents who haven’t grown up themselves yet. All of these kids want to win the title at the bee. And no show is ever the same, since the audience participates directly in the show. If you would like a chance to get on the show, then you only need to come 20 minutes early and volunteer. There are pre-show interviews and a questionnaire for the lucky four people who will be part of the show.
Can you spell?
One of the great things you will learn about this play when you see it with your Manhattan rent a car is real audience members compete with performers in the Putnam County spelling bee. Some of the words that audience members are asked to spell include ahimsa, schuss, badchen, and even supercalifragalisticexpialidocious! An interesting note is Julie Andrews misspelled this word when she was a guest speller for kids night. Some of the words are real, some are made up. Even if you are not a good speller, you wll leave in your Manhattan rent a car laughing from the fun.
Some nights there are also dedicated “Parent-Teacher Conferences” or “adult night at the bee” where members of the audience must be at least 17 to attend. These special performances grew from R-rated ad libs during rehearsal and often have sexual references.
From grade school to high school
Another high-energy play that takes place in high school that you can see with your Manhattan rent a car is Grease. This is the story of new student, Sandy, who had a brief love affair with tough guy Danny over the summer. When Sandy sees Danny at school, he blows her off. Later, Danny apologizes, but she is upset that he told his friends that she is “easy”. Eventually, Danny misses Sandy and tries to win her back. Sandy also tries to win Danny over by making herself into his dream date. In the end, everyone is happy. This is a great play to see with your Manhattan rent a car. When Grease opens in the summer, it is sure to be a hit that you will not want to miss with your Manhattan rent a car. Get your tickets early for this show while you are in the area. This classic American musical is a lot of fun to see on stage!
Seeing a play on Broadway
In order to see these two great plays, you might want to save a little money. There is a very easy way to get cheap tickets while you are here with your Manhattan rent a car. For discount tickets, you can go to Duffy Square, near Times Square. Here, there is a ticket sales office called TKTS, which sells tickets at half price for same-day shows.
