A live band almost always makes a musical better, and that’s what you’ll get at Brelby Theatre Company’s mounting of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee through Saturday, April 1. The combo serves as infrastructure for William Finn’s exuberant score, which makes big production numbers out of events that may seem humdrum — but everything’s angsty and important when you’re 13, as these spellers are. (Though the actors portraying them are mostly grownups.)

The setting, bringing together six kids from different schools, inherently provides the conflict, competition, and passion that make for great theater. Plus, difficult words! The play is also funny as spit. Voluntary audience participation helps spice things up and delivers some schadenfreude, too, as you watch people other than yourself crash and burn.

Showtime on Friday, March 17, is 7:30 p.m. at 7154 North 58th Drive in Glendale. Tickets are $17 to $25 at brelby.com or 623-282-2781.
