Busy, Bubbly "Junie B. Jones"
Comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre May 30

5/1/09


Step 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 college's West 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.

Theatreworks USA is America's largest and most prolific professional not-for-profit theater for young and family audiences. Since 1961, Theatreworks USA has enlightened, entertained, and instructed more than 72 million people in 49 states and Canada, now performing for about four million people annually.

Tickets are $8 for children, students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults. Free parking is available next to the theatre. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Theatre Box Office at 609-570-3333.
