Miss Nelson Sensory Friendly Performance


The Dallas Children’s Theatre is postponing its tour of Miss Nelson Has a Field Day. We are working with the artists to reschedule this performance at Midland Center for a later date.

As soon as we have more information regarding the rescheduled tour of Miss Nelson has a Field Day, we will let you know.  If you have tickets to this event, our ticket office will be contacting you directly by phone to discuss the process of moving you to the new event or providing a refund. If you are a teacher who has reserved this event for your classroom, our staff will be in contact with you.

We look forward to coming back together as a community through the art of music and performance. We appreciate your patience and support – we will get through this together!

For more information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have information here. We are also creating additional family and teacher resources which will soon be available both online and via social media, with a schedule at this link.

This fun-filled musical, featuring the Dallas Children’s Theatre, takes us to Horace B. Smedley School where the Smedley Tornadoes never won a football game. In fact, they never scored a single point! With such a poor record and an out of control team, kind-hearted Miss Nelson comes to the rescue with the help of her alter ego, the ill-tempered Miss Viola Swamp, to coach and whip them into shape. 

The APRIL 30 performance is a sensory-friendly performance. Adjustments have been made to the performance experience so individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, sensory sensitives and disabilities, and post-traumatic stress disorder and their families can enjoy the show in a judgement-free and welcoming environment. If you have questions, please contact the Center in advance of purchasing your tickets
