PCS Children’s Theater Presents: Miss Nelson is Missing

PCS Children’s Theater Presents:
Miss Nelson is Missing



Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone! In Miss Nelson is Missing, a local cast of grown up actors and singers explore lessons of appreciation and respect and what happens when uncontrollable children send the gentle, long-suffering teacher, Miss Nelson, over the edge.

Recommended for children ages five and up, our story begins with the children in Miss Nelson’s class - the worst behaved in the whole school. Spitballs flying across the room, paper airplanes sailing every which way and a teacher on the edge! But the students of Room 207 are in for a surprise when Miss Nelson turns up missing and is replaced by Viola Swamp, a scary substitute teacher who assigns homework from hell and wields her ruler like a sword! In desperation, the students set out to find their beloved Miss Nelson…but will they ever get her back?

In this fun adaptation [with a twist!], the grown up players become the teachers for both children and adults – reminding us that we shouldn’t take the good people in our lives for granted. With book, music and lyrics by Joan Cushing and based on the stories by Harry Allard, director Ed Donlevie has assembled a talented cast to tell his tale. Locals from Wallingford, Media, Aldan, Morton, Garnet Valley and Devon bring this story to life: Allison Gerrard, Elizabeth Iannacci, Emily Fishman, Danny Walsh, Ed Sharples and Kenny Fischer.

The show runs Saturday, February 15th at 4:30pm; Sunday, February 16th at 11:00am; Friday, February 21st at 7:00pm; Saturday, February 22nd at 4:30pm and Sunday, February 23rd at 11:00am.

Children's Series productions will be performed on The Players Club of Swarthmore's Raymond W. Smith stage on the second floor. Adult tickets are $10.00 each and Children under 12 are $8.00, cash or check only. This show is recommended for ages 5 and up. All tickets are sold at the door on the day of the performance.
