Julie McHale of the The Waukesha Freeman calls The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee “a delight” and says that “All In Productions once again proved its worth in this well-honed offering.”

The Shepherd Express writes that The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is “one of the funniest shows of the ongoing theater season” and that “The entire cast is sparkling”.

Marilyn Jozwik of The Wisconsin Theater Spotlight writes that All In Productions “has found new, creative ways to tell the story.” And “The bee is hosted by Rona Lisa Perretti (Samantha Sostarich), a former bee champion who delights in returning to those glorious days of her past. Sostarich has a dynamic, engaging persona and a lovely voice that pleasantly handles the high notes in ensemble numbers and especially in her solo, “My Favorite Moment of the Bee.”

Anne Siegel of TotalTheater.com writes “All-In Productions offers a completely captivating show”. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is “is well worth adding to your entertainment calendar.”

Russ Bickerstaf of The Small Stage writes “Thanks to an impressive cast under great direction, this is easily the most satisfying production of the musical that I’ve seen.” And “Samantha Sostarich proudly radiates gentle authority in the role of Bee official Rona Lisa Perretti. Long ago Rona won that spelling bee that she know helps officiate. Sostarich has a sweetly maternal sense about her in the role.”
