The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Harrison Hilltop Theatre
Thursday, August 12, through Saturday, August 28
Timber Lake Playhouse
Thursday, August 12, through Sunday, August 22
Yup, you read that correctly: Davenport's Harrison Hilltop Theatre and Mt. Carroll's Timber Lake Playhouse will both open productions of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on August 12. And this is one of those times when stepping down from my theatre-reviewer tenure seems like the stupidest decision on Earth, because I can't think of many other musicals I'd be quite so excited to see in two separate venues over the same weekend.
