Adults may be cast as children, children may be cast as adults, and humans may be cast as animals.

ABOUT THE PLAY:

Something terrible happened to Junie B. Jones at school today! Someone stole her new furry mittens! So when Junie B. finds a wonderful pen of many colors, she should be allowed to keep it, right? Because finders keepers, losers weepers. And guess what? There's a new boy in kindergarten and he is the handsomest. The only thing is both Grace and Lucille want him to be their boyfriend. Maybe he will love Junie B. when he sees her wonderful pen! It is okay to keep it, right? Junie B. Jones is not a crook . . . or is she? Junie B. has a lot to learn about friendship, honesty, and being true-to-herself, but with the help of her friends, family, and an unexpected trip to the Lost and Found, she discovers that there’s no problem a good knock-knock joke can’t fix. A hilarious and heartfelt tale based on the best-selling book series by Barbara Park.
