The Junie B. Jones Musical Cast Album is now available for Pre-Order!
Join the beloved Junie B. Jones and a quirky, wonderful cast of characters as they sing and dance their way through this original family musical! It’s a new school year, with a whole lot of adventure in store: New friends, new glasses, singing lunch ladies, bossy classmates, kickball tournaments, and juggling biscuits are just the beginning of the lessons learned —much more than what fits on the chalkboard or could fill a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax” Journal. Based on the popular Barbara Park book series and adapted by award winning songwriters Marcy Heisler (book/lyrics) and Zina Goldrich (music) for Theatreworks USA, it’s tuneful, first-grade fun for all ages.
Here’s a synopsis from Music Theatre International…and check out the BROADWAY JUNIOR version coming soon:
Created by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the team that brought you Dear Edwina, comes Junie B. Jones, The Musical – a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park’s best-selling books, brought to life in a genuinely comical (and not strictly-for-kids) musical developed by TheatreworksUSA. Awaken a young person’s desire to read with the sassy little diva, Junie B. Jones, and her adventures in first grade.
It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting.
Featuring a tremendously loveable character and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones will capture your audience members’ hearts just as the books captivated an entire generation of students. The small cast, minimal design needs and performance accompaniment CD make this an ideal show for theatres looking to tour schools or with strong education programs.
