Where: SumTur Amphitheater, 11691 S.108th St. Papillion, Ne

P-L-V-C-T spells fun this summer with Papillion La Vista Community Theatre’s production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! An event for the whole family, bring your picnic, blankets, and chairs for green seating, or reserve vip stadium-style seating.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “”ding”” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

The PLVCT production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be performed at 8:00 p.m. on July 16-18 and 22-24 at the SumTur Amphitheater (11691 S 108th St, Papillion, NE). Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased online at or at the SumTur box office Mondays through Fridays from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

SumTur Amphitheater offers reserved stadium seating as well as green seating. Attendees enjoying the play from the green are encouraged to arrive early with blankets and lawn chairs. Onsite concessions will be available, but is limited to beer, wine, water, soft drinks, and popcorn due to current COVID-19 safety precautions. Guests may also bring their own food and beverages to enjoy during the show, with the exception of alcohol.
