Dallas Children's Theater presents Miss Nelson Has a Field Day
Dallas Children's Theater will present its first fully virtual production, Miss Nelson Has a Field Day, in which families watch the journey of the Horace B. Smedley Tornadoes, the worst football team in the world, as they attempt to focus long enough to score a single point. When their coach can’t motivate them, Miss Nelson, the school’s favorite teacher, is forced to call in a trusted, yet feared, reinforcement in this zany musical spectacular. The bold and intimidating Coach Viola Swamp will try whip the Tornadoes into shape just in time for the big rivalry game.
This high-definition virtual performance was shot on multiple cameras in DCT’s own Baker Theater in the Rosewood Center for the Performing Arts. Families may rent a performance for $10 through August 1.
Fans can upgrade to the $25 package for a Zoom opportunity on July 30 with Playwright Joan B. Cushing who also wrote the musicals Miss Nelson is Missing, Junie B. Jones & A Little Monkey Business, and Diary of a Worm, A Spider, & A Fly. Former Board President, Sharron Hunt, will also share with families how she influenced the name Super Bowl and cast members will be online as well.
The $50 package, guests will receive an invite to the special Zoom session, a personalized video wake-up call from their choice of four characters (Coach, Viola Swamp, Miss Nelson or the Cheerleader). Package buyers will also be entered in a drawing to receive a stuffed football, book, or other great items.
Each rental is good for one viewing anytime 72 hours after purchase.
