Junie B. Jones is the star of the show! Kindergarten is where you go to not watch TV. Fixing the upstairs toilet is a dream come true. Her new B-A-B-Y brother is a real, alive baby MONKEY. Such is the world according to Junie B. Jones in this hilarious new musical about a precocious kindergartner who just can’t help shooting off her BIG FAT MOUTH!


"A treat in Crayola colors ... Tuneful, funny, and bouncy like kids with ants in their pants ... A child’s play for all ages."

The Washington Post

"Cushing's Junie B. Jones proves that musicals for children can live on the same level as adult fare ... Seattle Children's Theatre ends their season with one of the best local productions of a musical in years ... Cushing perfectly captures the energy and style of Park's characters. She is able to counter the bombastic moments with quietly poignant scenes and songs ... Her score is top notch, featuring fiendishly witty lyrics on top of catchy music ... This amazing show is not to be missed."                                                                                                     Broadway pick *****
