Here's what's happening this week!

Midland Community Theatre presents
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
September 16-19, 2010

A hilarious tale of overachievers' angst, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee relays a story of the unlikeliest of heroes. Six quirky kids in the throes of puberty overseen by three equally quirky adults enter a spelling competition, vying for the title of a lifetime. This charming group of outsiders learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
Recommended for those 12 and up due to language and adult situations.
