10:00–11:35AM
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Georgia – Dalton Little Theatre

Written by Sheinkin/Finn
Directed by Melissa Adams

With an engaging, tuneful score by William Finn and a sweet, funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, 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.

11:35AM – 1:10PM
Romeo and Juliet
South Carolina – Mill Town Players

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Christopher Rose

Shakespeare’s famous tragedy about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reunite their feuding families. MTP’s unique production is inspired by the Hatfield-McCoy feud of the late 1800s in rural Kentucky and West Virginia. Featuring Shakespeare’s language, stage combat, bluegrass music and Appalachian dialects, this is Romeo and Juliet like you’ve never experienced it before!

1:10–2:45PM
The Diviners
Alabama – Wetumpka Depot Players

Written by Jim Leonard
Directed by Kim Mason

A marvelously theatrical story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. The Diviners is in turns humorous, beautiful and tragic; and surprisingly speaks of many present-day concerns with gentle wisdom.
