Busy, Bubbly ‘Junie B. Jones’ Comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre April 28
Youngsters will enter a world of fun when “Junie B. Jones” comes to Central New Jersey. Theatreworks USA brings the irrepressible first grader to the stage at Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre Saturday, April 28 at 2 p.m. 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, this endearing musical chronicles a day in the life of our very outspoken and very active leading kid as she describes it in her "top secret personal beeswax journal.” Among Junie’s challenges are getting used to a new bunch of friends, meeting a new teacher, adjusting to wearing glasses, participating in the annual kickball tournament and other familiar childhood challenges. Young audiences will easily connect with this warm and bubbly heroine, who finds a way to succeed in the end and learns important lessons about friendship and acceptance along the way.
