Last Saturday I saw Auburn Theatre's production of "The 25th Annual Putnam COunty Spelling Bee."

Never heard of it...well neither had I. That's a lie I had heard OF it, but knew nothing about it. Regardless I can't pass up a local show so my friend Melissa and I went.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised - it was cute/touching/funny/inappropriate. It was a short show - we didn't even have an intermission, but it was great.

As I was looking up some of the songs from the show the other day I found out that my favorite character - Leaf Coneybear, was originally portrayed off/on Broadway by Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell from Modern Family*).

The show is basically about 7 kids (played by adults) in a spelling bee. Click HERE for more info

*Speaking of Modern Family my NEWLY ENGAGED friend and fellow blogger Codi referred to Modern family as: "think Full House meets Will and Grace meets The Office. It's that good." That is SUCH a great description. If you haven't checked it out stop reading my damn blog and get on hulu immediately!
