Synopsis

Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is an 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

A KICK IN THE BAUBLES

By Gordon Steel

Directed by Dawn China

BOOK: www.javeenbah.org.au; PH: 07 55960300

Javeenbah Theatre, Corner Ferry and Stevens Streets, Nerang

Synopsis: It's another peaceful Christmas in the Bauble household, but chestnuts aren't roasting on an open fire. And although a Silent Night would be welcome, all is not calm and all is certainly not bright. Frank does not wish it could be Christmas every day - in fact, he's dreading the arrival of snobbish in-laws who only ever bring a single bottle of wine for the entire festivities. Throw in a couple of larger-than-life neighbours, let the drink flow merrily and everything is set for a car-crash Christmas. But when Frank and Jean's estranged daughter Milly suddenly appears, the rug is pulled out from underneath the chaos and the heartstrings are firmly tugged.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
