Memorial Opera House 2022 Mainstage Season

LimeLights Presents  

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.
