New American Theater Presents: 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
<www.newamericantheater.org>

F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C! - That's the only way to spell this smash-hit musical comedy! The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is the story of how six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award-winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a roller coaster of music and fun.

Where: Florida Holocaust Museum
Friday, July 1, 2011
The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.
