CATHE Youth Theater
The CATHE Youth Theater Company is devoted to the development of our youth. We are an education-based theater company that allows youth to not only learn stage craft, but also to work on sets, lighting, costumes, marketing, filmmaking, and all other aspects of production. CYT is interested in partnering with school districts and homeschooling groups to provide educational opportunities in the form of participation in all aspects of theater production. Reduced rates are available, as well as special show times suitable for field trips. Study guides for use in the classroom are available upon request. Please contact us for more information.
the 25th annual putnam county spelling bee
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
*This is an adult show with some mature themes
Audience members will be able to choose from 2 different Lunch Boxes prepared by the CATHE Center's Cafeteria Lady- Gourmet Girl. There will also be a dessert bar with an assortment of mini cupcakes and, of course, milk cartons.
