Junie B. Jones on Stage

. April 1, 2015.

She’s sassy, silly and always getting into sticky situations. She’s Junie B. Jones!  This beloved book character leaps from the page to the stage in a new TheatreWorks USA production coming to Findlay.  The Arts Partnership is sponsoring a school day performance of “The Junie B. Jones Musical” on Wednesday, April 15, 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Winebrenner Auditorium.  Children in kindergarten through 5th grade from many area school districts including Findlay City, Arlington, McComb, Liberty-Benton, St. Michael’s, and the Findlay Center for Autism and Dyslexia will attend the sold-old performances. The musical is based upon Junie B’s adventures in three books: “First Grader at Last,” “Boss of Lunch” and “One-Man Band.” “It’s important to expose children to the arts,” says Craig VanRenterghem, education director at the Arts Partnership. “And what better way than a musical based upon a popular literary character that the children know and love?”
