Enter to Win Tickets to “Miss Nelson is Missing” at Adventure Theatre


It’s yet another KFDC giveaway! And this one suits the snow day well, since it’s for an activity that is perfect on a winter day: A chance to see Miss Nelson is Missing, a family production on stage at Adventure Theatre.

Based on the book from the 70’s by Harry Allard, the show is recommended for ages 5 and up (though I have found that younger children can often enjoy the theatre’s shows suggested for older children, too). Here’s the official description:

Miss Nelson’s class is the worst! Spitballs flying and paper airplanes sailing across the room send the gentle, long-suffering teacher over the edge. Surprise…Miss Nelson turns up missing, only to be replaced by Viola Swamp, a petrifying substitute teacher. Will the students of Room 207 ever get Miss Nelson back?


Miss Nelson is Missing is running through March 9, with both weekend and weekday performances. Run time is 55 minutes, and tickets are $19.

Giveaway: Want a chance to win a Four-Pack of Tickets to see Miss Nelson is Missing? Simply leave a comment below telling me your favorite book from your childhood. To be eligible, you must like KidFriendly DC on Facebook. The giveaway will run through the weekend, and a winner will be drawn at random and notified next week. Good luck!

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Adventure Theatre, however, I only promote events, services, and activities that I truly believe in and/or think would appeal to KFDC readers.

    I thought about making something up but would rather be brutally honest and tell you how I didn’t read much as a kid, nor did my (single) mom read to me (that I recall). After growing into a fairly avid reader and vowing that I would read ALL THE TIME to my 2 boys, I must say that I love reading ANY Dr. Seuss book to them (love the Dr. Seuss ABC book) and I love “Love You Forever”.

    My Mom has told me I loved “Are you My Mother?” when I was a baby. And then “Freddy the leaf” in like 4th grade. Only just recently, have I found out what Freddy the leaf is really about.
