Bubbly "Junie B. Jones"
Comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre May 30
into the world of "Junie B. Jones" and there's
fun in store. Theatreworks/USA presents the irrepressible first
grader in her very own musical at Mercer County Community College
Saturday, May 30, at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the
Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Based on Barbara Park's best-selling book series, the production
chronicles the outspoken and lovable youngster's daily accounts
as she describes them in her "top secret personal beeswax"
journal. Junie B.'s challenges include getting used to a whole new
group of friends, meeting a new teacher, adjusting to wearing glasses,
participating in the annual kickball tournament and other angst-ridden
situations of childhood. Young audiences will easily connect with
this warm and bubbly heroine, who finds a way to succeed in the
end and learns important lessons along the way.
