June 2, 2021: Outdoors is where it all happens now! Bronxville High School is thrilled to present an open-air production of the musical "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" under the direction of Choral Director Pamela Simpson.
Six middle-schoolers compete in a regional spelling bee and are tested with words that range from the familiar ("crayon"), to the esoteric ("syzygy") to the frankly nonexistent ("hasenpfeffer"). But correct spelling is not the only pressure facing our contestants. They must also navigate the expectations and quirks of parents, families, and spelling bee administrators. Who will be left standing? Come join us for the return of live theater!
The performances will take place on the front lawn of the Bronxville School, near the auditorium steps. Seating is limited to accommodate social distancing. We ask that all wear masks. Showtimes are: Friday, June 4 at 6pm and Saturday, June 5 at 1pm and 6pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 (cash) at the door. No refunds.

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.
The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.
The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children. All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
