Final Weekend!

Putnam Co Spelling Bee

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee by Rachel Sheinkin portrays the story of an eclectic group of six tweens vying for the spelling championship while candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives. A riotous ride complete with audience participation, this musical comedy with a fresh and vibrant score by William Finn is a delightful den of comedic genius. Show dates are March 2-18, 2018, on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and on Sundays at 2:00pm. This production is by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

You can also reserve seats by calling the Chief Theatre at 352-493-2787 (493-ARTS). We look forward to seeing you there!​

In Rehearsal

Noises Off Auditions

SVP is in rehearsal for Michael Frayn’s Noises Off!, a Tony Award winning show that is a play within a play. This is the story of a British theatre company performing a tour of a run of the mill bedroom farce, Nothing On. The story follows the company from their final dress/technical rehearsal to the last leg of their tour, where backstage love affairs and conflicts ensure that the production falls horribly and hilariously apart.

Noises Off is the quintessential modern farce. It is smart, riotously funny, fast paced, and an ensemble-acting tour de force. It is a very physical comedy filled with stage combat and pratfalls. Join us for side-splitting laughs April 27th – May 13th, 2018. This production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. For questions or further information, contact director Diana Child at or 352-210-8792.

You can also reserve seats by calling the Chief Theatre at 352-493-2787 (493-ARTS). We look forward to seeing you there!​
