Junie B. Jones was first introduced in the children’s book series written by Barbara Park and illustrated by Denise Brunkus in 1992. This series includes a total of 28 stories of Junie B. Jones’s adventures and antics.
Director Chris Peterlin says “To be quite honest, I had never heard of Junie B. Jones except in passing. But I soon delved deep into her world in order to understand a bit more before directing. It has been an incredible delight to watch these young performers bring each character to life and lead a crew that enables them to bring this story to audiences. I hope you will all join us for a night or afternoon of laughter and good feels!”
The cast includes: Laynie Zika, Swara Jasti, Kenzie Strickler, Sarah Allen, Isley Oxborrow, Vince Kilgore, Chris Maxwell, Reese Watson, Thayer Martinez, Brady Rosenbohm, Noah James, Emma Pulley, Lasya Jasti, Esther Oxborrow, and Bella Bishop.
Corn Stock for Kids is a program that is for students ages 7 to 18 to give them their first opportunities at community theatre and seeing how a production comes together through technical elements, theatre etiquette, acting skills, and more.
