‘No Child’

Matthew Reddin

A good teacher makes all the difference in a classroom. And in No Child, at Next Act Theatre, Marti Gobel gets to play one, a teaching artist who tries to turn the “toughest class in school” into young actors able to produce their own play. But Gobel won’t stop there — she plays all 16 roles in the production, from students and parents to teachers and administrators, under the direction of Mary McDonald Kerr.

At 255 S. Water St., Milwaukee. Tickets are $28 to $38 and can be ordered at 414-278-0765 or nextact.org.
