The Menlo-Atherton International Thespian Society will stage the musical comedy, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," on March 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 in the performing arts center at Menlo-Atherton High School, 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.

"When six young spellers convene in the local high school gym for the annual county spelling bee, parental pressures and pre-pubescent stress send them into overdrive," said Lyn Napel, a parent volunteer for the M-A Drama Boosters, in the announcement. "Audience participation is all part of the fun with the chance to see favorite M-A teachers and staff on the hot seat as they attempt to spell alongside the student actors."

Showtime is 7:30 p.m., plus a 2 p.m. matinee March 19. The Menlo-Atherton High Orchestra will accompany the performers. Use the Ringwood Avenue entrance, just off Middlefield Road.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students, seniors and staff.

Purchase tickets at the box office before shows or online.
