MISS NELSON a hit in Milwaukee!  The reviews are in...

MISS NELSON’ ACTORS ARE A BLESSING IN DISGUISE

By ELAINE SCHMIDT, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Julie Ruth plays Nelson and Swamp. She is cotton-candy sweet in her blond, pastel-clad portrayal of Miss Nelson, speaking in a soft-edged, gentle voice. As Swamp, Ruth barks out orders and laughs in a delicious, Margaret Hamilton cackle. Dressed in black as Swamp, with a scruffy black wig and grim glasses, she defines her opposing characters decisively, with an element of caricature that hits home with the young audience.”

 

ENDEARING MISS NELSON

By WILLY THORN, The Shepherd Express

“Julie Ruth plays Miss Nelson and Viola Swamp with an overt sense of caricature and good-evil dichotomy, drifting from actions of motherly tenderness to a Disney villain's evil cackle.”

 

'MISS NELSON IS MISSING!' FINDS DELIGHTFUL, HILARIOUS LESSONS

By DAVE FIDLIN, This Week! Publications

"Kids from 4 to 104 will enjoy the simple, life-applicable tale found in "Miss Nelson Is Missing!"  Ruth deserves an accolade for her dual roles, sweet one minute while portraying Miss Nelson and tart the next as Miss Swamp.  Her ability to switch off so quickly, and with unfailing ability, is a definite testament to her acting abilities."
