Under the direction of Adam Brooks, the Elk County Council on the Arts Summer Theater Camp will present Junie B. Jones The Musical JR.
It will be a 60-minute student version of the witty and charming show featuring a book and lyrics by Marcy Heisler and music by Zina Goldrich, which was adapted from the Junie B. Jones series of best-selling books by Barbara Park.
The public performance will be held on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 7 p.m., at the St. Marys Area High School Carpin Auditorium.
It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school.
Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal, and first grade has never been more exciting.
