Next up on the Second Stage, The Players Club of Swarthmore’s Children’s Series presents, Junie B. Jones The Musical. A delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park’s best-selling books, Junie B. Jones The Musical, is brought to life in a genuinely comical (and not strictly-for kids) musical. With lyrics by Marcy Heisler and music by Zinia Goldrich, Junie B. Jones The Musical is delightfully entertaining. Meg Cranney is both the director and choreographer and Alyssa Cherewaty is the music director.
After graduating from Kindergarten, Junie B. Jones (Devon Duffy, Carneys Point, N.J.), is entering first grade. Scrawling everything down in her Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal, Junie B. Jones deals with a whole new dynamic on the school bus, a new homeroom teacher and the possibility that wearing glasses will be necessary. Additional cast members of Junie B. Jones The Musical include Bryan Mottershead, Philadelphia; Mollie Durkin, Havertown; Kat Lemon, Swarthmore; Gianna Medina, Swarthmore; Liz Houser, Aston; Laura Barron, Drexel Hill and Pat Walsh, Aston.
