When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! And Junie B. Jones does exactly that, winning your audience’s heart, just as the best-selling book series by Barbara Park, captivated a generation. It’s Junie B’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed. Her BFF Lucille no longer wants to be her friend and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she needs glasses. Throw in a new kid, a kooky cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament, and a “Top Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and this fun-filled musical is sure to electrify your venue’s family and education series.
