Keeping it S-I-M-P-L-E, by Corbin Hernandez

             The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is not a show one would expect a children’s theater to produce, even in the hands of teens.  The music is difficult, there are many elements of the show that can change on a whim, and the emotional journey of the show is…
