About the Production

Our Miss Brooks by Christopher Sergel, based on the scripts by R.J. Mann, follows the comedic adventures of a 1950’s high school English teacher, Miss Connie Brooks, as she handles her students, her job, and her love life, all with trademark style and humor.This three-act extended “episode” of the show starts with Brooks pressured into directing the school play.When the class diva doesn’t get the leading role, life gets more complicated for her, and things only get crazier as a fight over the basketball team’s star player and the gymnasium put her at odds with the attractive basketball coach, Mr. Longacre.Filled with snappy jokes and high-school hijinks, Our Miss Brooks is a comedy that’s appropriate for all ages.The CBS radio show broadcast from 1948 to 1957 was an instant hit, the TV series from 1952-1956 was a four-time nominee for the Emmy for Best Comedy, and star Eve Arden won the 1954 Emmy for Best Female Star.
