Skylight’s “Spelling Bee” is F-U-N
Elaine Schmidt, Special to the Journal Sentinel writes Skylight Music Theatre turns ‘Spelling Bee’ into a day of laughter
Gwendolyn Rice says Skylight’s “Spelling Bee” is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C.
“Bizarre color commentary is provided by saccharine local realtor and bee alum Rona Peretti (Samantha Sostarich, complete with the fake smile of a beauty pageant contestant).”
Anne Segel of the Shepherd Express reviews that Skylight’s ‘Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ Gets an A!
“The cast members who play the adult roles include Skylight favorite Samantha Sostarich as a former spelling bee champ who serves as a judge; Robby McGhee as a somewhat unstable vice principal from a neighboring school, also a judge; and Shawn Holmes as a paroled convict who consoles the contest losers as part of his public service. All three actors double and sometimes triple their roles, displaying their versatility as artists.”
