New Jersey Theatre Alliance presents Centenary Stage Company’s production of “Miss Nelson is Missing” on March 11, 2016 at 7 p.m. This event is part of the Alliance’s Stages Festival, the state’s largest annual theatre festival that provides free and discounted theatre events for all ages throughout the month of March. This event is free for kids and $5 for adults.
Based on the popular children’s book, Miss Nelson can’t control her crazy classroom because she’s just too nice. But when she disappears, her substitute is the no-nonsense Viola Swamp! With the big test approaching, the kids suddenly realize how much they miss their Miss Nelson… and they’ll do anything to get her back!
The Stages Festival offers dozens of performances, workshops, classes, and events at the state’s professional theatres, performing arts centers, libraries, schools, senior centers, and other community venues. The program was developed to encourage New Jersey’s residents to attend their local professional theatres by making the experience affordable, accessible, and fun. Since its inception 19 years ago, the program has served over 190,000 people.
