Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee buzzes onto Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre’s stage for four rollicking performances that each promise unique surprises prompted by audience participation. A cast of actors and improv veterans steps into the sneakers of six adolescent outsiders competing in their school’s spelling bee to get a taste of the popularity and acceptance they so desperately crave. During the actual spelling bee, four audience members vetted before the show join the cast onstage to participate, adding a hilarious, unpredictable element to the show without having to employ a pack of wolverines to play each character’s parents.
Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre
When Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre's doors open for each evening's performance, guests are greeted and escorted to their tables where they can order cocktails. Then, with thirsts parched and pocket watches swinging, they move onward to a hot buffet of made-from-scratch Pennsylvania Dutch dishes, including breads, roast beef, chicken, fish, and housemade desserts. But sweets aren't the only treat here. After dessert, the curtain opens to family-friendly Broadway-style shows that incite laughter, explore American history, or challenge theatergoers to discern which actors are real ghosts. And to tie the dinner and show together even tighter, the performers are the same people pouring the coffee. DC Metro Theater Arts notes that "the warm ambiance found at The Lazy Susan is indeed half of the fun of going."
