Miss Nelson is Missing!

“Miss Nelson is Missing” is about a teacher who can’t control her crazy classroom because she’s just too nice. However, when she disappears, and her students meet the substitute teacher Viola Swamp, they realize how much they miss Miss Nelson. Join us to see how far the students will go to solve the mystery of where Miss Nelson is.

Thespian Troupe #1159
Thespian Troupe #1159 is an honor society committed to supporting and learning about all aspects of theatre.The focus of this group is on both artistic and technical theatre education, and students are required to be actively involved in GBN productions. Troupe activities include field trips to neighboring high school shows and professional theatres downtown, and attending the Illinois High School Theatre Festival in January.
Membership into the troupe is restricted to inducted members, but there are a variety of events throughout the year that are sponsored by the troupe and open to all students. In order to be inducted, students must acquire ten points for their participation in productions or activities, and meet the induction criteria. The induction ceremony takes place in May. Active thespians are expected to remain in good standing with the troupe, which includes attending as many meetings as possible and all but two (2) workshops throughout the year.
The Theatre Board consists of four student leaders from the Thespian Troupe. These leaders decide on the troupe schedule, meeting events, and dues. In order to be eligible for Theatre Board, a student must be either a junior or a senior who is an active member of the thespian troupe. Interested students must apply by April 15. The new board is announced at the Theatre Banquet.
