Hartsville, S.C. – On Sun., May 6, beginning at 3 p.m., Hartsville families can experience Miss Nelson Has a Field Day, the sappy sequel to Miss Nelson is Missing, performed by the Columbia Children’s Theatre at the Center Theater located at 212 N 5th St in Downtown Hartsville.

The Smedley Tornadoes have not only never won a football game, they have never scored a single point! Coach Armstrong goes bonkers and Miss Nelson decides to help out. She enlists Coach Viola Swamp to whip the team into shape and save the day!

“Frolicking football players, a perky cheerleader, a hilarious spatula-wielding cafeteria lady, and an electrifying Viola Swamp, who transforms from the sweet-faced Miss Nelson to the dreaded coach, all play to the appreciative giggles of local schoolkids… The carefully choreographed slow motion finale is as grittily elegant as anything on ‘Monday Night Football.’ The Washington Post
