Redmond's CORE Theatrics will present "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," a six-time-nominated Tony Award-winning musical, at 7 p.m. on March 21, 22, 28 and 29 and at 2:30 p.m. on March 22 and 30 at the Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center, 12033 N.E. 80th St., Kirkland.

According to a CORE Theatrics press release, the show "shares the story of the unlikeliest of heroes who learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. Quirky and charming, we watch as this cast of outsiders both struggle through and celebrate their journey; learning where they can stand out and fit in at the same time."

An unusual component of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters.

Ticket prices are $15. Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more at $13 per ticket; email coretheatrics2008@gmail.com for group tickets. The show is for ages 11 and up.
