An eclectic group of sixth-graders arrive at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings only her best friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee; bold and hyper allergic speller William Barfee uses his “magic foot” to propel him to greatness; former champion Chip is struggling with his burgeoning puberty; easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he’s smart enough to be a challenger; overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success; and politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her dads. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition.

Mark your calendars now for
“Little Foot Steps”
Performances will be held
March 11-12 at The Moose Lodge!

RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER: Join us for “Little Footsteps,” a heartwarming story of a young couple becoming parents for the first time. This production will be held at the Duncan Moose Lodge, located at 1712 W Seminole Rd in Duncan, February 19th and 20th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, seniors, and military personnel. This production is directed by Beth Ann Hough and produced by Tana Latham. The show stars Carra Spigner, Garrett Nichols, Tana Latham, and Darrell Ashford, who also serves as stage manager. Seats will be socially distanced, and masks will be required inside the venue. The cast and crew will be competing with this play at the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association state competition, and possibly the American Association of Community Theatre regional competition later this spring.

THE STORY: Ben and Joanie, in their mid-thirties and married eight years, are an upwardly mobile “Yuppie” couple about to become parents for the first time. Ben (who is Jewish) works in television, Joanie (a quintessential WASP) is a would-be artist. As the play begins they are redecorating the dining room of their Manhattan apartment for use as a nursery, an activity which both underscores the impending changes in their lives and reinforces Ben’s uneasiness about it. The scene is filled with funny lines as Ben tries to make light of his misgivings, but his fears lead inevitably to dispute and, by the end of Act One, Ben has departed and Joanie suddenly finds herself a single parent-to-be. In Act Two, which takes place several months later, a christening party is in progress attended by Joanie’s parents, Charlotte and Gil, an affluent older couple who are not hesitant to point out that they never much cared for Ben in the first place. As for Ben, having avoided the formal christening, he now sneaks in through the nursery window determined (in a gesture towards his own religious background) to intone a few Jewish prayers over his newborn son—which, when the others suddenly return, leads both to a series of wildly funny misunderstandings, and also, in the end, a tenuous reconciliation and a commitment, by both Ben and Joanie, to try to grow up before their offspring does.
