*Spelling Bee* cancelled
The three performances of *The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,* scheduled for Nov. 29-30 at the INB Center, have been cancelled.
According to Lerria Schuh, marketing director for WestCoast Entertainment: "In 21 years of presenting national tours, we have never had to cancel an engagement.
"The national tour of *Spelling Bee* has been derailed by the effects of the recent California wildfires and is in the process of re-organizing their engagements in southern California. As a result, the tour will be unable to route back to Spokane for their planned performances on Thanksgiving weekend. There is a slight possibility for a re-date in 2009, but at this time, the producer's office was unable to confirm that."
If you bought tickets online or if you are a Best of Broadway subscriber, you'll automatically be refunded. If, however, you purchased at a TicketsWest outlet, you have to return there within 30 days or else mail to TicketsWest, 720 W Mallon Ave, Spokane WA 99201.
