Everett, Wash. – Village Theatre Pied Piper is excited to present a Snohomish County favorite, JUNIE B. JONES—a musical based on the books by Barbara Park—at the Everett Civic Auditorium on Sunday, March 11 at 2PM.
Outspoken, precocious, lovable Junie B. Jones stars in a colorful, funny, fast-paced musical about new friends, new glasses, sugar cookies, the annual kickball tournament, and other various first-grade angst-ridden situations. Follow her adventures as she writes down the story of her life in her “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal.” This musical is based on four volumes in Barbara Park’s Junie B. Jones series of books, illustrated by Denise Brunkus and published by Random House: Junie B, First Grader (at Last!); Junie B, Boss of Lunch; Junie B, One-Man Band; and Top-Secret Personal Beeswax: A Journal by Junie B (and Me!).
One hour prior to curtain, young people are invited to participate in themed pre-show arts, crafts, and fun in partnership with Imagine Children’s Museum.

About Village Theatre Pied Piper
Since its inception in 1998, Village Theatre's Pied Piper series has introduced tens of thousands of children to the inspiration of live theatre. For many, Pied Piper has been or will be the beginning of a life long exploration of the arts, and because many of the performances are based on children's literature, Pied Piper also stimulates interest in reading. The Pied Piper program is dedicated to enriching the cultural lives of young people and supporting the classroom objectives of educators by bringing first-class educational performances to students, teachers, and families in the Puget Sound area. A Programming Advisory Committee, made up of teachers, principals, administrators, and parents advise on the selection of productions and presentations for each season’s series, with the final selections being made by Village Theatre's educational and artistic staff.
