Not Just For Kids: Junie B. Jones

Hooray, hooray! TheatreworksUSA is making a musical (that is a play all jumbled together with singing and dancing, I believe). And what do you know! It’s all about me, Junie B. Jones! This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It’s got loads of funny songs, and it’s based on a bunch of books this lady, Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade. Whew! I’m glad I can write everything down in my Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal! And you know what? I think I might like first grade after all!
