Fairhaven Native to Star in UMass Boston's Spelling Bee Musical
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee UMass Boston's First Musical in 15 Years
BOSTON, MA (04/16/2012)(readMedia)-- A Fairhaven native will take the stage starting April 17 in the University of Massachusetts Boston's first musical in 15 years, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
The production, which features music and lyrics by William Paine and a Tony-Award winning book by Rachel Sheinkin, is a hilarious tale of six quirky, yet charming adolescent outsiders hoping for a chance to win the Putnam County spelling bee, which is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
Chris DuBois, a freshman music major and graduate of Fairhaven High School, plays Dan Schwartz, a father intent on his little girl winning the spelling bee.
The show opens Tuesday, April 17 at 6 p.m. and continues through Sunday, April 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for general admission. All performances will take place in the McCormack Theatre, which is on the second floor of McCormack Hall on the UMass Boston campus. Patrons can buy tickets at the door or make a reservation by emailing email@example.com.
