Chair's Note

A Play of Words What is a word? [wurd] (noun 1. a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds that functions as a carrier of meaning?) Where do these units of spoken sounds originate, and how many meanings inhabit each one, and how do all of the word's individual pieces fit together exactly? What is adolescence? [ad-l-es-uh ns] (noun 1. the transitional period between puberty and adulthood in human development.) It is a time of transformation, the before-we-are-who-we-become chapter in our lives. It is when the pieces of our identity don't quite fit, when hormones jolt us into charged states, and independent parts of a discordant whole wage war with one another. It is the chapter of life where we struggle to find our Self. Naming a thing is a way of capturing it. If we can identify the pieces of the thing and put them together just so, we will have conquered one small piece of the puzzle that is our universe. But to really know a thing we must know where the thing came from, its place of origin. And we must know all the meanings of the thing and the way it sounds as its vibrations travel from the inside of a body out into the world. We must hear the word spoken aloud. The ritual of the spelling bee places us in the charged center of a complicated rite, the goal of which is to place all the components of a single thing in no place other than where they belong. My father was an immigrant [im-i-gruh nt] (noun 1. a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.) His place of origin was Poland. He spoke broken English. People made fun of him. I had the unique distinction of being called a Polack in my junior high and this distinguishing characteristic was highlighted frequently on the bus and in the schoolyard before school began. I would breathe a sign of relief as I entered homeroom, a temporary haven that began with a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. One day, an imaginative classmate decided to take alliterative license: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for Richard Rand, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. At first it went unnoticed...but one by one, it caught on. Soon everyone was saying it. I was panic stricken. I was certain that this second distinguishing trait would supplant the previous one and I would be an accessory to the crime of defiling our country's sacred pledge. I thought the teacher would notice, but he never did. And gradually, over many weeks and months, the Pledge of

Allegiance took on new meaning in my life. The misfit, the isolated entity who desired nothing more than to shed his alien status started to think of himself as a republic [ri-puhb-lik] (noun 1. a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens), as one nation [ney-shuh n] (noun a large body of people that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government of its own) existing under God (noun 1. the one Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe who is worshipped as having power over the fortunes of mankind). I became indivisible [in-duh-viz-uh-buhl] (adjective 1. incapable of being divided) and there was freedom and justice for each and every part of me. All of me that didn't fit suddenly became greater-than-the-sum-of-mycollective-conflicted-adolescence-angst-ridden-parts whole! Tonight we will bear witness to adolescent trials and tribulations, to turning points and rites of passage in the lives of our misfit accolytes [ak-uh-lahyts] (noun 2. members of the highest-ranking.) They sought the answers to all of life's mysteries in a book where every word could be found and defined and spelled. But the process of putting all the pieces of oneself in perfect order, of defining oneself, and finding one's place in the universe can never be captured in words. It is a journey that must be lived. (Richard Stockton Rand misspelled the word sentence in the spelling bee at P.S. 135 in Hollis, Queens. He is currently Chair of Purdue Theatre.)

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019 Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax 212-397-4684 www.MTIShows.com Originally Directed on Broadway by James Lapine Originally produced on Broadway by David Stone, James L. Nederlander, Barbara Whitman, Patrick Catullo, Barrington Stage Company, Second Stage Theatre Based upon C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, an original play by The Farm. The Barrington Stage Company workshop of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE was originally co-directed by Michael Barakiva and Rebecca Feldman. The Farm was founded in 2000 by Rebecca Feldman, Artistic Director. It is a collective of writers and performers, including Jay Reiss, Dan Fogler, and Sarah Saltzberg. The Farm's interest is in the role of improvisation in creating new work for the theatre. The Farm initially designates a two-week intensive period in which to discover, develop, and rehearse a play from the impulses borne mainly out of the pressure of a deadline. Previous projects include "Super" (at Atlantic Theatre Studios), "Why I Hate Florida" (workshop at White Wave in DUMBO) and "C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E" (at the Present Company Theatorium in October 2002), on which "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is based. The character and original dialogue of "Beth Marguiles," "Vice President Douglas Panch," "Mr. Barfee," and "Logan Schwarzengrubenierre" were created by Rebecca Feldman, Jay Reiss, Dan Fogler, and Sarah Saltzberg, respectively.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, as you'll soon discover, is not your ordinary musical theatre piece -- and it didn't come about in the ordinary way. The idea first saw the light of day as C-R-E-P-US-C-U-L-E, a performance created by a New York City improvisational comedy group called The Farm, which dealt with the trials of middle school students participating in their local spelling bee. (The show was the brainchild of The Farm's Rebecca Feldman, who still remembers misspelling `bruise' as B-R-U-Z-E at her own spelling bee.) The late playwright Wendy Wasserstein went to see C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E to support a friend in the cast and went home thinking it could make a great musical. Wasserstein called her friend, composer William Finn, he brought in his friend Rachel Sheinkin to help with the script and the rest, as they say, is history. The authors realized that the improvisational feel of the original piece provided much of the fun of the evening and so they worked diligently to find ways to preserve that feeling in a scripted musical. Some of their solutions will be apparent this evening while others may be less so ­ including topical references, quick `jump cuts,' and character fantasies that seem to spring out of nowhere. These techniques are not uncommon in film and TV (Mel Brooks films, Arrested Development, Family Guy), but are less frequently seen on stage. From a thematic point of view, the authors saw the spelling bee as a kind of metaphor for the human experience -- sometimes you get the easy words and sometimes you don't. As the kids in the show tell us: "Life is random and unfair!" What I like best about Spelling Bee, though, is how ­ in the midst of the mayhem, music and laughter ­ it finds a way to take us all back to those terrible and wonderful middle-school years. The years where we really began the journey of discovering who we are ­ and who are friends are. The time when we learned that it's OK to be different ­ or not. And when we learned that it's OK to lose ­ or to win. I suspect that as you watch the show this evening, you'll find characters on stage who remind you very specifically of someone from your past. And it may even be you. Thank you for coming. Now sit back, relax and . . . E-N-J-O-Y!

Larry Sommers

MUSICAL DIRECTOR'S NOTE

The music of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee gives us a window to the innermost thoughts of the show's colorful cast of characters. We explore the fantasies and realities of each speller through a wide variety of musical numbers ranging from powerful ballads to a raucous kick line. Composer, William Finn seamlessly combines elements of gospel, international, and classic Broadway sounds to create a unique and exciting score. We hope you enjoy this musical journey, rich with humor and all the emotional turbulence of adolescence! Sara Mummey

DESIGNER'S NOTES

Scenic Design / Russ Jones The scene design for our production employs a scale that attempts to overwhelm the characters. We use the vertical mass of the gymnasium walls to emphasize the "human-ness" of these youngsters and all their foibles that are so humorously displayed. The architectural style of our Putnam County gymnasium is from the 1940's. We are drawn to the "old school" in order to reference the ancient halls of academe; to elicit astonishment from some of the characters who are from more modern schools; and, hopefully, to allow some of our audience members to recall their own past experiences with attending school. Finally, we surround the playing space with a never-ending list of words--a jumbled list representing the cluttered minds of our spellers. Costume Design / Anthony Paul-Cavaretta The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (2005) by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin, is a musical comedy about discovering that being different is okay. The theme of discovery led to researching classrooms, especially those of middle and high schools. Within these classrooms there are hundreds of colors and textures and shapes but there were also common trends. The colors tended to be bright, energetic secondary colors with silver accents, the textures tended to be shiny like laminate and the shapes were usually rounded. Utilizing these elements in the design helped to create youthful, fun and energetic costumes that convey the childish qualities of all of the characters. Sound Design / Mike Wilga The primary role of sound in a musical is to reinforce the performers and musicians. Beyond that, the sound design brings the many worlds that exist within this show to life, allowing the audience to travel along the same emotional journey as these adolescent characters.

There are large production numbers where a specific character reveals a desire or insecurity and the sound design will contrast this spectacle with a sharp return to the same nervous reality as the spellers. "The mic" in particular is used to express these emotions. The audience feels the pressure and the magnitude of the stress that the spellers feel when they attempt to spell their words. This is their altar. Lighting Design / William J. Stewart The swiftly transformative nature of this show was achieved by illuminating the gymnasium scenes with a heightened sense of reality. The gym filled with the warm artificial glow of incandescent overhead lighting will provide a base distribution while cooler natural light, implied from the clerestory windows will serve to provide focus and increase contrast. The sometimes "dreamlike" nature of the musical numbers will be unexpectedly juxtaposed against the scenes by using highly saturated colors, sharp templates, and movement to create alternate locations for private emotional pathos of the characters innermost thoughts.
