Junie B., “the B stands for Beatrice”, is so excited to start the first grade! That is until her best friend finds some new best friends and her bus buddy finds somewhere else to sit. And to top everything off, she might need glasses! This hilarious musical is based on five of Barbara Park’s best-selling books and lets us
meet classic characters from those books like “Tattletail” May, Mr. Scary, and Herbert from “Clarence Somebody or other” Elementary School. JUNIE B. JONES THE MUSICAL is a story about adapting to change, looking for the silver lining and most importantly, making new friends!
The book and lyrics for this musical adaptation was written by Marcy Heisler with music by Zina Goldrich. Songs featured in JUNIE B. JONES THE MUSICAL are “You Can Be My Friend”, “Top Secret Personal Beeswax”, “Kickball Tournament”, “When Life Gives You Lemons”, and more!
