Junie B. Jones Holiday Show to Play Rivertown Theaters This December
Rivertown Theaters presents the younger set favorite Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! The Musical on the Main Stage, December 1 - 10.
The producers of Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts continue their commitment to showcase and develop the talents of budding local thespians with the very special production based on the popular children's book. The delightful musical will feature young performers from around the metropolitan New Orleans area. Cast members will be in the lobby after the show for a meet and greet with the audience.
Junie B. Jones, First-Grader, is super-excited about the upcoming Holiday Sing-PLOT Along and Secret Santa gift exchange at her school. Too bad tattletale May keeps ruining all of Junie B.'s fun. So when Junie B. draws May's name for Secret Santa, she comes up with the perfect plan to teach her nemesis a lesson! But will the Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill interfere before she can give you-know- who what she deserves?
