Columbia Children’s Theatre presents childhood classic, “Miss Nelson is Missing” sponsored by the City of Hartsville and Duke Energy Foundation
On Sunday, March 12 beginning at 3 p.m., Hartsville families can experience the childhood classic, “Miss Nelson is Missing”, brought to life by the Columbia Children’s Theatre at the Center Theater located at 212 N. Fifth St. Originally presented by the Columbia Children’s Theatre as part of its 2006 – 2007 season, this delightful story is back with some new faces. The kids of room 207 are quite a handful for cheery Miss Nelson. However, when Miss Nelson disappears, her replacement is the strict, homework-overloading substitute teacher Viola Swamp. Audience members will be on the edge of their seats as they help the kids of room 207 find their beloved Miss Nelson.
“I’m so excited to be getting my hands on this musical again,” says Columbia Children’s Theatre, Artistic Director Jerry Stevenson. “We’re finding Miss Nelson is a bit more cynical and twisted than she was the first time around.
