The Hilliard Arts Council is proud to announce our 2018 fall musical –  25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. The small cast and unit set make this a perfect option for high schools or community theatres. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron...

The Hilliard Arts Council is proud to announce our fall musical – Little Shop of Horrors! This year, we are having two weekends of performances! A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination! The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song,...

Theatre for kids, by kids! The Hilliard Arts Council is gearing up for our special children’s theatre production – The Jungle Book! In this action-packed adaptation of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he’s as fierce a wolf as any of the members of his pack. When he discovers he is actually human, he must learn how to reconcile these very different identities and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world from which he was born. Baloo, a sloth bear, and Bagheera, a black panther, decide to follow Mowgli in his quest and train him in the Law of the Jungle to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal throughout the jungle. Shere Khan is the nasty rogue tiger who believes no humans deserve the protection of jungle animals and should be killed.
