Why See Junie B. Jones?
Wowie wow wow!
Adapted from Barbara Park's series of beloved children's books, this 60 minute musical brings to life everyone's favorite spunky first-grader. Follow Junie as she embarks on her first day as a first grader and embarks on a mission to get cookies for everyone in her year. Featuring an eclectic cast of Junie's friends, teachers and dinnerladies, this show tackles the problems of growing with all the silly slapstick fun and moral principals of the books, and throws in some insanely catchy songs for good measure (kids and parents will be guaranteed to humming 'Top-Secret Personal Beeswax' for months afterwards).
This live adaptation is based on four of the Junie B Jones volumes: Junie B, First Grader (At Last!), Junie B, Boss of Lunch, Junie B, One-Man Band and Top Secret Personal Beeswax: A Journal by Junie B. It's directed by Peter Flynn (Nate the Great) and choreographed by Off-Broadway veteran Devanand Janki.
This production is put together by Theatreworks USA, the New York company who have been producing high quality and educational family theatre shows for over 50 years. Alongside Junie, their current repertoire also includes live versions of Charlotte's Web and Curious George.
Opening night: 2 March 2018
Suitable for all ages, but especially recommended for grades K-5.
