Miss Nelson Is Missing Sneak Preview

Come to the library for a special sneak preview of the Des Moines Community Playhouse production of Miss Nelson Is Missing, based on the classic story by Harry Allard. Miss Nelson’s class is the worst behaved in the whole school, but the students of Room 207 are in for a surprise when Miss Nelson turns up missing and is replaced by Viola Swamp, a scary substitute teacher. Enjoy the performance and register to win free tickets to the play!
