Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Ms. Sugarcoat is eager to mold the young minds of the future. But university textbooks didn't prepare her for helicopter parents, entitled high-needs students, and political correctness at the cost of telling the truth. When Pat the Beaver shows up, Ms. Sugarcoat's delicately controlled world threatens to implode. A hilarious original show written and performed by Alice Nelson, Ms.Sugarcoat won the Audience Choice Poll at Sage Theatre's Ignite! Festival.
