Return to Horace B. Smedley School where the Smedley Tornadoes have never won a football game. In fact, they have never even scored a single point! With such a poor record and a team that is out of control, kindhearted Miss Nelson comes to the rescue when she enlists the help of her alter ego, the ill-tempered Miss Viola Swamp, to coach the team and whip them into shape. A fun-filled musical from the award-winning playwright/composer who brought you Diary of a Worm, a Spider & a Fly. Produced by Dallas Children’s Theater.

Age Recommendation

Best for ages 5 and up.


The 4 p.m. performance will be sign interpreted and/or audio described upon request. Please let the ticket agent know at least two weeks before the performance if you would like either of these services when you order your tickets from Dayton Live.
