About the Show
Run Dates: June 20th - 28th, 2014, Beddington Heights Community Arts Centre
PLEASE NOTE: For the week prior to opening (beginning Sunday June 15th), please expect a rehearsal or other activity on each day.
The competition is intense. The words are ridiculous. Let the spelling begin!

As a special treat to help celebrate our own 25th Anniversary, FRC is proud to present the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the spelling championship of a lifetime.

Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, find that the spelling bee is the place where they can both fit in and stand out.

The hilarious Tony Award winning music includes "I Speak Six Languages", "My Unfortunate Erection", and "The I Love You Song" and just goes to prove...

Life is Pandemonium

Audition Location

Auditions are held at the Beddington Heights Community Arts Centre.
375 Bermuda Dr NW, Calgary, AB (Click here for directions).
Audition Requirements

Please note that FRC produces shows on a volunteer, recreational basis, and does not financially compensate participants except for pre-approved show-related expenses.

Prepare one piece per instrument that you will be auditioning, of no more than 5 minutes in length. If you are auditioning multiple instruments, please book extra auditions slots as befits the amount of time it will take to play your piece.

Ideally our woodwind player would be able to play Alto Sax, Bb Clarinet, Flute and Oboe, but we are willing to look at performers who are not as fully rounded in all of these instruments.
Mondays from 7-9 pm starting May 9th at the Beddington Heights Community Arts Centre
Instruments Required
  • Cello
  • Percussion
  • Keyboard
  • Alto Saxophone
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Oboe
