Junie B. Jones Is Back For Spring Break!


She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! During SPRING BREAK ONLY, Main Street Theater is presenting Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook! Why is Junie B. such a favorite? "She is such a quirky, witty and honest little girl!" says MST Theater for Youth Producing Director Vivienne M. St. John. "Junie really wants to be good and do the right thing, but she always seems to land herself in to trouble. Kids love her because they can relate to her. Adults relate to her because while some of the things she says can be trying, she reminds them of the children in their lives. Junie brings a chuckle and a smile to all who read her stories or see her live on our stage!"
