Oct. 28, 2016 – Jackson, WI – Under the direction of Kate Schaffer with production by Erin Laabs, both Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School teacher, Kettle will be performing its children’s theater starting today – Miss Nelson is Missing.
Schaffer is confident the audience will enjoy her production, especially the cast. “They have been working diligently to make the show entertaining and as unique as possible. It was great to see how well they worked together,” she said.
The audition took place in early August. Preparation was one big key that Schaffer and Laabs took throughout the audition. They looked for people who knew the audition material and could be a good fit for each character. The cast have been practicing on a nightly basis to prepare. “They spent countless hours of dedicated work on this show,” said Schaffer.

The performance is Oct. 28-29 at 7 p.m. as well as a 2 p.m. performance on Oct.30 at KML’s PAC. Tickets will be sold at the door beginning 45 minutes before each performance. It’s $6 for adults and $4 for K-12 students and seniors 65+.
“This show is comedy for certain. From kids to adults, wide range of people can definitely enjoy. We hope to see you all in our WACKY classroom!,” said Schaffer.
