Miss Nelson at Orlando Shakes


Miss Nelson can’t control her crazy classroom because she’s just too nice. But when she disappears, her replacement is the hard-as-nails, detention-loving, recess-canceling, homework-overloading substitute teacher Viola Swamp! With the Big Test approaching, the kids suddenly realize how much they miss Miss Nelson and they’ll do anything — including hiring a private eye — to solve the mystery of her disappearance and bring her back.

Miss Nelson is Missing! was originally published in 1977 and has since stood the test of time, remaining a childhood classic,” says Anne Hering, director of education. “Parents, teachers, and young audiences will love seeing the story spring from the pages and enriched with catchy music, audience interaction, and show-stopping choreography.”
