Junie B. Jones, the Musical
Friday Night, July 7, 2017 is Pajama Night!
Sassy little diva Junie B. Jones’ first day of first grade and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend Lucille doesn't want to be her best pal anymore, and on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher Mr. Scary thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting!
Created by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the team that brought you Dear Edwina, comes Junie B. Jones The Musical - a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park’s best-selling books brought to life in a genuinely comical, and not strictly-for-kids musical developed by TheatreworksUSA. For more about the Junie B. Jones books, visit www.juniebjones.com or a bookstore near you!
