Theatreworks USA's fast-paced, one-hour musical starring the outspoken, precocious first grader from Barbara Park's popular series of books will be presented at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on both days.
"In previous years, we have always sold out two performances, so this year, we are offering four opportunities for our area elementary students to see the show," explained Diane J. Flynn, director of the children's series.
"Kindergartners through fifth graders will enjoy seeing some of their favorite characters come to life as Junie deals with new friends, new glasses, the annual kickball tournament and other angst-ridden situations she writes about in her 'Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,'" Flynn continued.
Anticipating a sell-out for all four performances, Flynn encourages parents and teachers to purchase tickets early.
Tickets are $6 for individuals and $5 each for groups of 20 or more.
