    Unlikely heroes and audience participation highlight The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a production from the Mind's Eye Theatre Company that opens on Friday.

    Spelling Bee will take place on Sept. 19, 20, 26, and 27 at 8 p.m. each night. Matinees, meanwhile, are to go on Sept. 21 and 28 at 2 p.m. each day. All performances are to happen at the Mex Theater in the Kentucky Center for the Arts, located at 501 W Main Street in downtown Louisville.

    Tickets for each show are $18 per person. All tickets can be purchased at the Kentucky Center box office, the Kentucky Center website, or by calling the Kentucky Center box office at 800-775-7777. Keep in mind the show has adult language and is recommended for those 13 years of age and up.

    The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee focuses on a group of contestants who find themselves dealing with joy, heartache, purpose, and, for some, triumph with each word.

    Part of the entertaining show will be members of the audience who will be involved as "guest spellers" for the night. To possibly be a part of the action, audience members should arrive early and let the stage manager know they are interested in being part of the show. Interested parties will then fill out a form and have a short interview. The audience members chosen for the "guest speller" roles will then be called out at the appropriate time.

    Janet Morris directed the comedy, which features Nicole Casteel, Mandy Kramer, Carrie Cooke Ketterman, Rachael Yeager, Jeff Mangum, Jeff Ketterman, Daniel Smith, Chris Meier, and Jake Minton. Kim Stover Hartz served as musical director, and Valerie Canon was choreographer.

    More information on the show can be found at the Kentucky Center website.
