Miss Nelson is Missing

Open to the public with two shows on Saturday, January 24, at 10 am and 3 pm.

Miss Nelson is Missing takes inspiration from the popular books by Harry Allard. Cushing’s musical and lyrics recreate unruly classroom 207 at Horace B. Smedley Elementary School. Faced with a classroom of misbehaving students, Miss Nelson disappears. Her substitute teacher, Miss Viola Swamp, is mean and mysterious. Under Swamp’s iron hand, the children realize how much they took advantage of their kind and gentle teacher. They long for Miss Nelson, but can they find her and bring her back?

Murder Mystery

Libby Labelle, art critic for the influential “Graphic News” used her vitriolic columns to destroy the careers of many artists. A good review from Libby meant instant success. A bad review could signal the end of the line for a career of even the most talented individual.

Oh but Libby didn’t limit her critiques to the art world. She’d regularly write scathing comments about the event she’d attended, panning the planning as well as the cuisine and the wine selection. That’s why, over the years, her list of eminent enemies grew. She was loved by her adoring fans and hated by the targets of her poisonous prose.

When it was announced that impressionist artist, Pete Casso, was to preview an upcoming exhibit at the Creative Connection Art Gallery, Libby made a point of letting everyone know she’d be there to once again pen a negative review of Casso’s latest masterpiece.

Who would have suspected that the review would never be printed? In the middle of an acerbic attack on both the artwork and the occasion, Libby collapsed in a heap on the floor of the gallery, her worrisome word processor silenced forever.

Did someone take the opportunity to do away with her explosive expletives? What past unknown indiscretions could have prompted the passion? It will take a palette of investigative skill, led by Detective Gordo to solve the case and identify the murderer.
