The drama enthusiasts at Theatre VCU assemble professional-quality productions of thought-provoking shows, passionately acted and staged by VCU students. To wrap up its 2012 Mainstage Season, Theater VCU lures locally beloved veteran director Gary C. Hopper out of retirement to stage the Tony Award–winning Off Broadway hit The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. The clever, one-act musical centers on six adolescent overachievers, each mired in their own unique form of pubescent angst as they embark on a comic quest to win a spelling competition. The play’s hilarity endures while the affable outcasts battle batty judges, frustrating pronouncers, and unhelpful usage-in-a-sentence examples. During each performance, four volunteer audience members hop on stage to compete in the bee along with the characters, creating the most fun interaction between actor and audience since Laurence Olivier’s infamous stage dives.

Though Theatre VCU offers discounts for students and seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most customers.

Young performers along with costume, scenic, and lighting designers, and stage managers hone their crafts and nurture their talents. And, they manage to create some pretty terrific art that has become a great community resource for entertainment.
