Join Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store: Junie's best friend Lucille has found new best friends - and Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. While in Mr. Scary's class Junie has trouble reading the blackboard - and she may need glasses. Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting.
• All rehearsals will be held at Prairie Center in Otsego
• Please bring a lunch. There is a refrigerator and microwave onsite. 
“This Activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the central MN Arts Board,thanks to Legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.” 
Character Breakdown

Junie B. Jones
Junie B. Jones is a spunky, intelligent girl who is starting the first grade as our show begins. Determined and a bit impulsive, Junie B. finds herself at the center of many classroom antics. 

Daddy is Junie B.’s encouraging father who always looks on the bright side. 

Mother is Junie B.’s no-nonsense mom. She can be tough on Junie B., but it is all out of love. 

Lucille is Junie B.’s former best friend who has moved on to new friendships. Poised, put together, and probably a bit spoiled, Lucille controls and plans everything she does – quite the opposite of Junie B.’s bold impulsiveness. 

Camille and Chenille
Lucille’s new best friends, Camille and Chenille are twins. Just like Lucille, they are well dressed and very composed. 

Grace is another one of Junie B.’s former best friends. She is not as calculated as Lucille, she has simply made new friends apart from Junie B. 

Mr. Woo
Mr. Woo is the supervisor on the school bus. 

Bobbi Jean Piper
Bobbi Jean Piper is Grace’s new friend. Bobbi Jean happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and unintentionally ends up on Junie B.’s bad side. 

Herb is Junie B.’s new best friend. An endlessly kind and charming little boy, Herb easily balances out Junie B.’s more demanding side. 

May is the teacher’s pet. Eager to prove her brilliance, May does not prioritize making friends with any of her classmates, and they do not mind.

Lennie and José
Lennie and José are classmates and friends of Junie B. and Herb. 

Mr. Scary
Mr. Scary is the Room One teacher. Unlike his name suggests, Mr. Scary is a supportive and encouraging teacher. 

Sheldon is definitely not the most popular kid in class. Plagued by a myriad of allergies and a general clumsiness, Sheldon’s good intentions often end in disaster. 

Shirley is a featured soloist in a few of the School Kids’ songs. 

Mrs. Gutzman
Mrs. Gutzman is the sweet old lunch lady, revered by all of the School Kids. C

The Ensemble consists of Tickle the dog, the School Kids, Lunch Student 1, Kids on Bus, Student 1, Student 2, Student 3, Student 4, Student 5, Lunch Server and Cheerleaders.
