This fast moving, hilarious comedy, deals with two earnest young men struggling to put out a “protest” magazine, and the all-American girl who moves in next door and manages to send both of them into a romantic tail spin. Love and politics blend delightfully in a bubbling series of funny happenings, set forth with the masterly skill and inventiveness that are the hallmarks of Neil Simon.

“…charm, brightness, deft inventiveness and capacity for good, honest hilarity…” – New York Post

PutnamcountyspellingbeealbumcoverOpening August 25th:

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”

A Musical with music and lyrics by William Finn.

Based on a book by Rachel Sheinkin.

Directed by Cheryl Blauer


Run dates: 8/25, 8/26, 8/31, 9/1, 9/2, 9/3, 9/7, 9/8, 9/9, 9/10, 9/14, 9/15, 9/16

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee offers a satirical look at six wacky kids (played by adults), along with some audience volunteers, competing in their local county spelling bee. There are three adults along to oversee the competition, and the contestants learn much about life and themselves as they use their individual and eccentric techniques in spelling the difficult words they’re given.

The spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn’t everything in this fast paced crowd pleaser. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, this musical is a delightful den of comedic genius. The 2005 Broadway production was nominated for 6 Tony Awards!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.

Rating:  Contains adult situations and language.

Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure.“This new play turns one of Holmes’ most famous mysteries on its head. Instead of a heady whodunit, this production is a fast-paced comedy.” – Washington City Paper

SCT is in Dire Need of a New Roof!17195954_1483561544.492

Since we purchased the building 5 years ago, the 1-2 periodic leaks have progressed into 5-6 major leaks.Dozens of repairs have been attempted over the years but as soon as one leak is stopped… 2 more appear elsewhere! Since the source of the leaks cannot currently be found, we are no longer in a “repair” scenario and a full replacement has been advised by multiple contractors. We need your help to replace the roof so theater patrons can continue to enjoy Stage Coach Theatre productions in a leak-free environment!
We need to raise $22,000. All proceeds go directly towards the SCT roof replacement!
EVERY little bit helps, so please donate whatever you can and spread the word!
Why? Because theater people are the BEST!
