Everyone knows the kids in Room 207 are the worst kids in school. Their well-meaning, frazzled teacher, Miss Nelson, just can't get them to behave. One day, Miss Nelson doesn't show up for school. Instead the kids meet Miss Viola Swamp, the meanest substitute in the whole wide world! She gives out way too much homework and never does story time.
The kids in Room 207 are forced to shape up for Miss Swamp, but they begin to worry about Miss Nelson. It's been ten days with no sign of her, and when the students go to her house it becomes clear...Miss Nelson is Missing! Don't miss this lively musical show down, winner of the National Children's Theater Festival Award for Best Musical.
Based on the book Miss Nelson is Missing! and Miss Nelson is Back! by Harry Allard, Illustrated by James Marshall and Adapted by Joan Cushing.

Performing March, 2013 ONLY
In honor of 2013 marking West Virginia’s 150th anniversary of statehood, Theatre West Virginia is proud to mount an abridged version of their popular Civil War drama, Honey in the Rock.
To fight for the dominance of the Union or the rights of its states? Such a decision destroyed many lives in the South during the Civil War.
But here in Appalachia, it resulted in the creation of a new state -- West Virginia. A state born out of a nation torn that was Union loyal and populated by a hard-nosed new breed of American.
Honey in the Rock chronicles the tumultuous birth of the Mountain State through the lives of some of its real and imagined residents. Book by Kermit Hunter and Adapted by Bobby Hall, Jr.
Director: Marion Waggoner
