Get ready for merry mayhem filled with Junie B. – joy and glee! Everyone’s favorite first grader and all her friends return to Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) for the holidays in Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. Performance run is November 16 – December 22, 2012.
Junie B. made her grand entrance in 1992 in a series of young reader chapter books by Barbara Park. Twenty-six books later, this lovable heroine has gained legions of adoring fans. Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells is based on two of Park’s books, Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! (P.S. So Does May.) and Junie B., First Grader: Shipwrecked, which made its debut at DCT in 2010. This year, Junie B. is feistier, funnier and spunkier than ever before!
Synopsis of the Show
It’s the last week before winter break and Room One is planning to celebrate. All the first-grades are having a Holiday Sing-Along and Junie B.’s class is chosen to lead the entire auditorium in “Jingle Bells.” Junie B. is nervous about this and has a flashback to the last time she performed in the auditorium for Parents Night. Junie B. thought she was the star of the Columbus Day play, but bossy May kept trying to take over. With the rivalry between them, and disagreements about which ships landed in America first, the show was a complete seafaring disaster! How will Junie B. get through the Holiday Sing-Along standing next to her?! Back in the present, everyone in Room One draws names for the Secret Santa gift party and Junie B. ends up picking her arch nemesis, Tattletale May. Will Santa be proud of Junie B. if she gives May exactly what she deserves?!
