Junie B. Jones, The Musical
Adapted from the Junie B. Jones series of books by Barbara Park
Sneak a peek into the Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal of the outspoken and lovable Junie B. Jones.
It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade and a lot of things have changed for her: The cafeteria lady is friendlier than Junie’s long-time best friend, Lucille, who doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore; there’s a new kid at school named Herb; and Mr. Scary thinks Junie B. may need glasses. As Junie B. says, “First Grade is not what it’s cracked up to be.”
Featuring a tremendously loveable character and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones will capture your hearts once again, just as it did when you were in First Grade.
