South Loop Resident, Eli Branson, Stars in "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" Musical

Always nice to see Sloopers doing good things:
We wanted to let you know that South Loop resident, Eli Branson, will star as “William Barfee” in the Tony Award-winning musical comedy THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE at Drury Lane Theatre from June 19-August 17.  
THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is the uproarious story of six overachieving and quirky adolescents pitted against each other in the spelling challenge of a lifetime. The show brilliantly integrates an element of improvisation into each performance as audience members are chosen at random every night to participate in the bee along with the show's characters, allowing the excitement and humor of a spelling bee to be experienced through the thoughts, emotions, and tribulations of the young competitors. SPELLING BEE is a satire with heart that teaches the characters and audience alike that winning isn't everything and losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
Break a leg!
