The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
UC Davis Main Theater1 Shields Ave.
Davis, CA 95616
Changing bodies and pressure to perform fuel this clever little slice-of-life musical, which delivers more mature insights than you might expect. The show’s diverse characters (and their rivalries) make for interesting outcomes, though some performers sing better than others. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 9/26. $15-$22. UC Davis Main Theatre (in Wright Hall, not Mondavi Center), (530) 754-2787 or (866) 754-2787, http://theatredance.ucdavis.edu.
