William Barfee, played by Christian Weeden, spells his word correctly using a rather unorthodox method in a scene from "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee." Weeden was rehearsing the part in the musical presented by Steamboat Springs High School, which will host performances at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Saturday at the high school. All tickets are general admission and are on sale at the high school.
