Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells!

by Allison Gregory based on the book Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! (P.S. So Does May) by Barbara Park
Junie B. Jones, First-Grader, is super-excited about the upcoming Holiday Sing-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? A hilarious and endearing tale based on the best-selling book series by Barbara Park.

Reviews

Chicago Theater Beat

"Gregory's script seamlessly incorporates vocabulary, logic, and messages of kindness and charity while entertaining with silly antics."

Sacramento Press

"The kids (and adults) are richly rewarded with lots of humor and silliness...plotting and revenge, and of course good old family values."

DC Theatre Scene

"A delightful antidote to the traditional schmaltzy Christmas show... Junie B. captures the crayon-bright chaos of childhood."
