Miss Nelson Is Missing at Nashville Children's Theatre 

Beware the Swamp!

Beware the Swamp!
Harry Allard and James Marshall’s 1977 children’s story is one of the most delightful read-alouds of the latter era in children’s book publishing. It was the first in a series of three works featuring the kindly but clever schoolteacher Miss Nelson, noted for its whimsical drawings and engagingly ironic storytelling. Its dramatic potential is also self-evident — as any parent familiar with the book might know — and hence the Nashville Children’s Theatre presentation of a musical adaptation by Joan Cushing should be cause for celebration. Director Julie Brooks’ production is led by Lisa Kimmey Winans in the title role, with a stout supporting cast that includes Ross Brooks, Shawn Knight, Jamie Farmer-Oneida, Brian Webb Russell and Holly Wooten.
Saturdays, Sundays; Wed., March 17, 2 p.m. Starts: Feb. 27. Continues through March 28, 2010
