Enjoy your local theatre this weekend

Cheyenne Little Theatre Players’ productions come fast and furious for us fans. For the directors and actors and stage builders and musicians – each play represents many long hours of work.

Chris and I volunteer often for the CLTP. Neither of us is much on acting and/or singing. Chris has some improve experience and I’m an emcee at the summer melodrama. But we love to watch people who can act and sing. 

We’ll be volunteering with other able-bodied folks this weekend for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” at the Historic Atlas Theatre in downtown Cheyenne. The play’s music and lyrics are by William Finn from a book by Rachel Sheinkin

Description: A hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
