Best Supporting Actor in a Musical - 2010
Scott Beyette, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
5501 Arapahoe Ave.
Boulder, CO 80303
Scott Beyette's lisping, daft and desperate William Barfee was the highlight of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a sweet, silly musical about competitive kids. In this Boulder's Dinner Theatre production, Beyette (who's also been doing some excellent directing at BDT) pulled off the neat trick of being hyper-funny and completely over the top while still communicating all the teenaged angst and vulnerability of Barfee. That's Barfay, he kept exclaiming desperately.
