Based on the children's book by Barbara Park, this play follows the feisty and irrepressible June B. Jones as she plays Secret Santa to her least favorite classmate, Tattletale May. Will Junie B. give Tattletale May exactly what she thinks she deserves or will the holiday spirit force a change of heart? With plenty of laughs and life lessons, this story is the perfect holiday treat for the whole family.

"We are thrilled to be bringing Junie B. Jones in Jingle Bells Batman Smells back to our family theatre stage this year." says Director, Julie Herber, " it's always a treat to see our lively audiences respond as they see a bit of themselves, their friends, or their classmates in the antics of Junie B. and her lovable class in Room One. A morning or afternoon spent with the family watching live theatre is a treat I hope we can share with the many families of Frederick and beyond this holiday season."
