Miss Nelson is Missing & Madeline’s Christmas Auditions

Merrill Arts Center is auditioning for the fall season! Show us your best acting skills and audition for Miss Nelson is Missing and Madeline’s Christmas on August 20, 2022.

Miss Nelson is Missing: Miss Nelson can’t control her crazy classroom because she’s just too nice. But when she disappears, her replacement is the hard-as-nails, detention-loving, recess-canceling, homework-overloading substitute teacher Viola Swamp! With the Big Test approaching, the kids suddenly realize how much they miss Miss Nelson and they’ll do anything — including hiring a private eye — to solve the mystery of her disappearance and bring her back.

Miss Nelson is Missing is Merrill Arts Center’s annual By-Kids-For-Kids show! Cast members will get the chance learn new, exciting skills and maybe get a little dirty in our Maker’s Studios taught by working theatre designers. Cast members will work alongside the designers to create the scenery, props and costumes for the show!

Madeline’s Christmas: “In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines,” begins the story of Madeline. This holiday season will be unlike any other for Madeline and her friends. While on their morning walk with Miss Clavel, the girls come down with the flu, and as they take to their bed, many wonder if they will be able to go home for Christmas. With the arrival of a mysterious stranger, Madeline and the other girls get a holiday adventure beyond their wildest dreams. This is a musical play adapted from Ludwig Bemelmans’ delightful book. A holiday treat for the whole family!
