Question: Do you have what it takes to be a spelling bee champion?
Those of you lured away by the sights and sounds of Car d’Lane Saturday night missed the Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre debut of Councilman Mike Kennedy and his son, Will. The Kennedys were two of the four audience members invited on stage by the thespians to join in the antics of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Papa Kennedy survived three rounds, spelling “Mexican” and “boulia” correctly before stumbling on “muntjac.” Young Will survived 4 or 5 rounds before being eliminated before intermission on a word that the enunciator made up, something that started with hippo and continued on for another 15 or so letters. Good fun. Good play.
Question: Have you ever performed on stage?
