When planning a season of shows for Urbana High School Theatre, director Tim Broeker sometimes thinks first about what audiences will love. For other shows, his primary goal is to challenge his student actors. And then there are some shows, like this year’s fall musical, that he expects will surpass both goals.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee might not be widely known by the general public, Broeker said, but audiences everywhere tend to fall for it—often returning to see it again the next night. “It covers some very serious, real-life themes around families and growing up, but it’s also very witty in a way that really engages audiences,” Broeker said.
While the show’s humor will keep everyone engaged, four audience members at each performance will be drawn in on an entirely different level: They’ll be invited to join the cast on stage as characters for part of the show.
Trick or Treat hours for the City of Urbana will be from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Monday, October 31st.
