SYNOPSIS: Dear first-grade journal, Hooray, hooray! There’s a musical (a play all jumbled together with singing and dancing, I believe) that’s all about me, Junie B. Jones! (The B stands for Beatrice, only I do not like Beatrice. I just like B, and that’s all.) This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It’s got loads of funny songs, and it’s about me and the things I do in first grade. Love (but not the mushy kind), Junie B! Let Junie B. Jones The Musical capture your audiences’ heart just as the books captivated a generation of students. It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed. Her friend Lucille no longer wants to be her pal and Mr. Scary thinks Junie may need glasses! Throw in a new kid named Herb, a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting. Adapted from the best-selling series of books by Barbara Park with Book & Lyrics by Marcy Heisler and Music by Zina Goldrich, this action packed musical brings one of the most beloved characters in children’s literature to your stage!
