ProArts in Kihei is proud to present the Tony-winning musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, produced and directed by Maui’s Jonathan Lehman. Six adolescent outsiders, overseen by grown-ups who barely seem to be adults themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. The spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. Audience members will be recruited to try their hand at spelling against the “experts.” $25. 7:30pm. ProArts, Azeka Makai Shopping Center (1280 S. Kihei Rd.); 808-463-6550
