Theatre in the Heights this weekend will host it final performances of the award-winning 2005 Broadway production “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”

Performances are slated for Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets appear to be sold out online, but may be available by phone.

The musical features “an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime,” according to a description on the community theatre’s website. The show is described as fast-paced and “wildly funny,” written by Rachel Sheinkin.

The play drew controversy this year in Ohio when a school board initially voted to cancel the production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, deeming it “vulgar” and not “family-friendly,” according to MSN.com The play includes a song called “My Unfortunate Erection,” which has drawn criticism, although an alternate version of the song is offered for high school performances.
