About the Play: A hilarious and heartfelt tale based on the beloved best-selling book series by Barbara Park, "Junie B. Jones is NOT a Crook" introduces us to the outspoken and curious kindergarten student Junie B. (the B. is for Beatrice) as she navigates the confusing world around her with the help from her Room 9 friends. Someone has stolen Junie B’s furry mittens so when she finds a wonderful pen with many colors, she wonders if “finders keepers, losers weepers” really is the rule. To make matters worse, there is a new boy in kindergarten and he is so handsome but “That Grace” and “Richie Lucille” want him to be their boyfriend. Playwright Allison Gregory’s script for young audiences focuses on ethics and empathy with humor and will surely capture the hearts of audiences of all ages.
