AUDITIONS

Book, music and lyrics by Joan Cushing

Presented through special arrangement with Theatrical Right Worldwide (TRW)

Miss Nelson’s class is the worst behaved in the whole school. Spitballs flying across the room, paper airplanes sailing every which way and uncontrollable children send the gentle, long-suffering teacher, Miss Nelson, over the edge. But the students of Room 207 are in for a surprise when Miss Nelson goes missing and is replaced by Viola Swamp, a scary substitute teacher who assigns homework from hell and wield her ruler like a sword! In desperation, the students set out to find their beloved Miss Nelson…but will they ever get her back?
