Abrams Spotlight Productions

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.

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com. Music & Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Shelton, Conceived by Rebecca Feldman, Additional material by Jay Reiss, Originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine

The plot follows the lives of the middle-class Smith family as they journey through comedic misunderstandings, jovial pranks, love and hardship surrounding the 1904 World’s Fair. The film immediately garnered four Academy Award nominations, and includes memorable musical numbers like “The Trolley Song” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.

Welcome To Our Website!

The Byng Community Theater was formerly the St. Louis Catholic Church in Abrams.  Many updates have been made to the facility to make it performance-ready. We have installed a stage, lighting, a small dressing room, costume and props storage, and converted the vestibule area into a concession stand. Office spaces were turned into the box office and sewing room. Improvements are constantly taking place.

Our organization has become popular with Abrams and the surrounding communities. We involve children and adults of all ages in acting, singing and dancing. We also train young adults to perform the lighting, sound, and backstage duties. We are promoting the arts in young and old alike.

Taking part in the productions is wonderful for all involved and many wonderful friendships are built.


Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is a non-profit community theatre organization formed January 2003. Since 2007 we have been presenting three shows per year in our home, The Byng Community Theater. Please come and visit us at our next show!
