Adapted from the best-selling book series by Barbara Park, JUNIE B. JONES, JR, follows Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store. This includes Junie’s best friend Lucille finding new best friends, Junie B. making friends with the new kid, and having trouble reading the blackboard, and getting glasses! Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting!  The show features many lovable characters and fun-filled songs great for all ages!
