Junie B. Jones The Musical, Jr.
Directed by Kelly Bourget & Jonathan Edward Owens
Friday, May 27 @ 8 pm • Saturday, May 28 @ 8 pm • Sunday, May 29 @ 2 pm
From Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the creators who brought you Dear Edwina and Dear Edwina JR., comes Junie B. Jones The Musical JR. – a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books, brought to life in a delightful adaptation created specifically for Broadway Junior performers.
Join Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store: Junie's best friend Lucille has found new best friends — and Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. While in Mr. Scary's class, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard — and she may need glasses. Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a "Top Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting.
Featuring many lovable characters and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones JR. will capture your audiences' and Broadway Junior performers' hearts — just as the books captivated an entire generation of students.
Co-Director Kelly Bourget says, “You don’t have to read the book to enjoy this coming-of-age story and the tales of childhood school days that it presents. It’s fun for all ages, and the entire cast and crew is comprised of kids ages 8 to 18, many of them new to theatre.” Visit historical Memorial Opera House to experience the imagination of a first grader’s journal in a larger than life, colorful retelling. “Seeing the growth of a student from the moment they enter the theatre until the moment they step foot on stage, is a rewarding and exhilarating experience,” says Co-Director and LimeLights Director of Education Jonathan Edward Owens.
This show runs for only one weekend. Please get your tickets now to see the passion and talent that these students offer to this community.
