When: June 16, 2017 – August 14, 2017
Where: Adventure Theatre
7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. 20812
Why: When Junie B. Jones, with her two bestest friends in the world, loses her new furry mittens to some “stealers,” she has to investigate. But Junie B. might have something she forgot to return, too.
I thought I LOVED Knuffle Bunny & Jumanji— Junie B. Jones is AMAZING fun for everyone! From the moment we walked in, I was sold. The set was as colorful as you can imagine a 1st graders imagination to be. A few cast members were swinging on playground equipment, singing songs and interacting with the audience until the show began. My son isn’t at the age of reading the Junie B. Jones series written by Barbara Park yet but after seeing the play and being entertained by Junie’s outgoing, talkative, hilarious personality, he’s ready to jump right in. We all know the phrase “Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers.” well, Junie is faced with understanding the meaning of this as she loses something important to her– an important lesson for all children. Megan Graves plays Junie and she truly hits it out of the park with her performance. I was laughing out loud on multiple occasions, the humor isn’t just for kids and she nailed it.
Running time is 80 minutes with no intermission. Recommended for all ages.
