THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Musical Theatre Department will present four performances of its spring musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee , on April 7, 8, and 9, at 7:30 p.m. and April 10, at 2p.m. in the EAC Fine Arts Auditorium. “The show centers on several students competing in a typical county spelling bee,” says Trish Jordahl, the musical’s director and Fine Arts Division chair. “The storyline follows the various personalities of the performers, the interactions between the spellers and those running the bee. It promises to be a fun evening of musical entertainment for the whole family. It’s bound to bring back memories for any former spelling champs and aficionados!”
