The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee – Parental Guidelines
Some material in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee may not be appropriate for children. Asheville Community Theatre gives the show a movie rating of PG-13 – Some Material May Be Inappropriate for Children Under 13.
Thematically, the show is intended for an older audience, though the adult actors are portraying young students.
Some lyrics contain words that some may consider blasphemous.
One song (“Chip’s Lament”) is about a contestant’s inability to concentrate because of his erection.
