Announcing auditions for Miss Nelson is Missing

Director Laurie Russell has announced auditions for Miss Nelson is Missing, the second production in the 2011-2012 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Auditions will be held Monday, November 14 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Tuesday, November 15 from 7-9 p.m. at the historic Monon Depot Theatre.

Those auditioning will be asked to prepare a one-minute memorized monologue, as well as to read from the script. To sign up for an appointment, call Civic Theatre at 765-423-7529 (PLAY). Everyone will be asked to stay until the end of the hour.

The director seeks youth between the ages of 7 and 18 to play the adult and children's roles.

The kids in Room 207 are the wildest, most rambunctious class in the entire elementary school. Their sweet teacher Miss Nelson doesn’t know what to do. She starts each new school year with a smile on her face, expecting an even better class than she had the year before. This year is different. This year is a nightmare. Poor Miss Nelson is out of ideas and on her way to a nervous breakdown, when suddenly she has a plan. The next day, the children arrive in class to find Miss Nelson has been replaced by Viola Swamp, the substitute no child ever wants to meet. She’s tough, strict, and never puts up with what she considers bad behavior. This hilarious classic follows Miss Swamp as she uses her idea of tough love to control the class, as well as the children’s attempts to find Miss Nelson before it’s too late for all of them.

Miss Nelson is Missing will open Friday, February 17 and run through Sunday, February 19 in the historic Monon Depot Theatre. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday performance begins at 2:30 p.m.
