Abrams Spotlight Productions is holding auditions next week for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” its first PG-13 production.

The 2005 Broadway production won two Tony Awards, including Best Book.

Auditions are scheduled from 6-9 p.m. April 25, and April 26 at the Byng Community Theater, 5842 Maple St., Abrams. Performers ages 15-17, with parental permission, and older are invited to audition.

Nine roles are available, including five men (four singing roles and one nonsinging role) and four women (all singing roles).

Individuals who audition should be prepared to sing a song that is not from the show. They can sing a capella or with a track, or they can bring sheet music and an accompanist will be available. There will also be a group choreography audition, so performers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes.

Callbacks will be held from 6-9 p.m. April 27, with a show read-through on May 2. Rehearsals will be held Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday starting Aug. 1. Performance dates are Sept. 15-17 and Sept. 22-24 at the Byng Community Theater.
