The Kahilu Theatre in Waimea is offering a limited time half-price ticket deal for the musical comedy, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Performances are Saturday, Jan. 11, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. It is their first in-house musical in two decades and the theater hopes to make “Spelling Bee” performances affordable for everyone. To access the special holiday offer ending on Jan. 3, order tickets on the Kahilu Theatre website at http://kahilutheatre.org, or from their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kahilutheatreorg. Insert the code 2014SPECIAL after selecting seats online. You can order at the $10, $15, and $20 levels. The $25 level — not part of that offer — is almost sold out. Only 12 tickets are left in the center section at that level for Saturday night. For more information, call the theater at 885-6868.
