SPECIAL EVENTS


Dallas Children's Theater presents the National Tour of Miss Nelson Is Missing
Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m.
Sept. 14, 1:30 p.m.
Performance Hall

All performances are free and open to the public.

 

From the award-winning playwright/composer who brought you Diary of A Worm, A Spider, & a Fly, comes her comes her fun-filled, musical sequel, Miss Nelson Is Missing. Return to Horace B. Smedley School where the Smedley Tornadoes have never won a football game. In fact, they have never even scored a single point! With such a poor record and a team that is out of control, Coach Armstrong goes bonkers. Kind-hearted Miss Nelson comes to the rescue when she enlists the help of her alter ego, the ill-tempered Miss Viola Swamp, to coach the team and whip them into shape. Considered by all to be "the meanest substitute teacher in the whole world," Coach Swamp applies her trademark discipline to the players' training, demanding tough exercises and no back talk. In the end, the team changes their attitude, pulls together, sharpens their skills, and manages to win the biggest game of the year. Frolicking football players, a perky cheerleader, a hilarious spatula-wielding cafeteria lady, and an electrifying Viola Swamp, who transforms from the sweet-faced Miss Nelson, all play a special part in this wacky musical. Recommended for ages 4 through adult or grades Pre-K through 4th.
