The Story

EVENT DATE: Dec 08, 2017

Join us for drinks, snacks, and hilarious entertainment at our first-ever Spelling Bee! The creators of Broadway’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee are bringing the thrill of a live Spelling Bee to Bank Street. During the Spelling Bee, seasoned performers, improvisers, and comedians acting as JUDGES will put our Speller’s skills to the test while keeping you on the edge of your seat. Proceeds will benefit the Bank Street School for Children!

 

This is how it works:

 

  • Each Speller is backed by a team. Together, teams are raising money to purchase cheats, which their Speller will use to win the Spelling Bee.
  • Cheats are like “lifelines” - spellers will use their fundraised amounts to purchase cheats so that when they’re in a bind on stage, they can get help. This can be anything from asking the audience to looking in the dictionary. Ultimately all of the funds will go to the Bank Street Annual Fund to support our programs! NOTE: No one is allowed to use their smartphones or other devices to help spell a word!
  • Spellers will be eliminated as words are misspelled. The last one standing will be crowned the winner. Our winner will take home bragging rights and a one-of-a-kind prize!

 

The EventThis event will be held on Friday, December 8 - Cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and Curtain at 7:00 p.m.
