Maryville High School’s Readers’ Theatre performed at the MSHSAA District competition on March 15 at Liberty North High School.
The performance group did a modern interpretation of the play, “Miss Nelson is Missing.”
The comedy tells the story of how Miss Nelson cannot control her crazy classroom because she is just too nice. However, a substitute teacher, Miss Viola Swamp, becomes Miss Nelson’s replacement when she disappears.
The students hire a private eye to solve the mystery of Miss Nelson’s disappearance.
The Readers’ Theatre will go on tour April 4, performing for the Retired Teachers of Nodaway County.
Members of the group include Chaz Brantley, Lydia Rauch, Jordan Sheehan, Kendra Henggeler, Sarah Henggeler, Jackson Zimmerman, Mason Dredge and B. J. Sudhoff.
