"Miss Nelson is Missing"

Spitballs flying across the room, paper airplanes sailing every which way and uncontrollable children send the nice, gentle, long-suffering teacher, Miss Nelson, over the edge. But the students of Room 207 are in for a surprise when Miss Nelson is suddenly missing and is replaced by Miss Viola Swamp, an awful, super-scary, meanest–substitute-teacher-ever who assigns a horrendous load of homework and wields her ruler like a sword! In desperation, the students set out to find their beloved Miss Nelson….but will they get her back before it’s too late – for them?! This performance is recommended for ages 6+.
