Spelling Bee
Hebron’s Spring musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, is an energetically funny show about an odd assortment of sixth graders who are competing in the final rounds of a spelling bee. Each character in this bee is motivated to win for different reasons, and the hilarious, touching, and catchy songs in the show highlight each character’s motivations through flashbacks and insight into what he or she is actually thinking as competitors are eliminated and the pressure rises. Our production of this show is appropriate for all ages, and its message, which explores the idea that winning is not everything, is sure to entertain and resonate with all audiences.

Argonautika
Mary Zimmerman’s Argonautika is an exciting, hilarious, and moving presentation of the timeless story of Jason and the Argonauts, who embark upon a perilous quest to recover the mythical Golden Fleece. The production is based upon the original epics by Apollonius of Rhodes and Valerius Flaccus—but this is no dry telling. Using minimal sets and costumes, the production transports the audience into an imaginative world of giants, dragons, and sea monsters which come to life before the audience’s eyes. Don’t miss one of the most highly-decorated and acclaimed shows from this year’s GHSA One Act Play competition—winner of two All-Star Actor awards (Cortland Ellis and Jozie Lewis), Best Tech, Best Ensemble, and Second Place overall. Argonautika is an EPIC evening of fun and excitement for all ages!
