What's on this weekend

MMM Discover The Downs

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTMAN COUNTY SPELLING BEE:

WHEN:  SATURDAY JULY 15TH

WHERE:  ARMITAGE CENTRE, EMPIRE THEATRE, 54-56 NEIL STREET, TOOWOOMBA

TIME:   7:30PM – 10:00PM

Join some of Toowoomba’s finest musical theatre performers in this hilarious Tony Award winning musical comedy about an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents who 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.
