Allen Park Community Center

Laugh yourself silly with Junie B. Jones in this hilarious Broadway Junior adaptation of Barbara Park's beloved series.

Join Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store: Junie's best friend Lucille has found new best friends -— and Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. While in Mr. Scary's class, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard — and she may need glasses. Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting.
Character Breakdown

Junie B. Jones
A spunky, intelligent girl who is starting the first grade as our show begins. Determined and a bit impulsive, Junie B. finds herself at the center of many classroom antics. An experienced actor with a strong singing voice and excellent comedic timing. Must be able to balance Junie B.'s charm and precociousness so the audience cheers for her right from the start.

Daddy
Junie B.’s encouraging father who always looks on the bright side. An actor who can comfortably portray an adult figure in a world full of young school kids. Daddy sings a song with Junie B. and Mother, so a performer with a nice voice who can portray Daddy’s kind heart.

Mother
Junie B.’s no-nonsense mom. She can be tough on Junie B., but it is all out of love. As with Daddy, a performer who can play a more mature person. Mother is a perfect role for someone with a good voice who can portray a supportive parent.

Lucille
Junie B.’s former best friend who has moved on to new friendships. Poised, put together, and probably a bit spoiled, Lucille controls and plans everything she does – quite the opposite of Junie B.’s bold impulsiveness. A strong singer and confident actor.

Camille and Chenille
Lucille’s new best friends, Camille and Chenille are twins. Just like Lucille, they are well dressed and very composed. Great performers with bright energy who are also good singers. The actors playing Camille and Chenille don’t have to look exactly alike.

Grace
Another one of Junie B.’s former best friends. She is not as calculated as Lucille, she has simply made new friends apart from Junie B. A performer who can portray a kind and laid-back character and has a good voice.

Mr. Woo
The supervisor on the school bus. Featured role with a commanding speaking voice as he is in charge of corralling the Kids on Bus.

Bobbi Jean Piper
Bobbi Jean Piper is Grace’s new friend. Bobbi Jean happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and unintentionally ends up on Junie B.’s bad side.

Herb
Junie B.’s new best friend. Endlessly kind and charming, Herb easily balances out Junie B.’s more demanding side. Has great chemistry with Junie B. 

May
The teacher’s pet. Eager to prove her brilliance, May does not prioritize making friends with any of her classmates, and they do not mind. 

Lennie and José
Lennie and José are classmates and friends of Junie B. and Herb. Good energy and nice voices.

Mr. Scary
The Room One teacher. Unlike his name suggests, Mr. Scary is a supportive and encouraging teacher. 

Sheldon
Definitely not the most popular kid in class. Plagued by a myriad of allergies and a general clumsiness, Sheldon’s good intentions often end in disaster. There is nerdy charm in this endearing role.

Shirley
Shirley is a featured soloist in a few of the School Kids’ songs.

Mrs. Gutzman
Mrs. Gutzman is the sweet old lunch lady, revered by all of the School Kids. Cast a mature performer who can capture her warm, grandmotherly nature. Mrs. Gutzman does not have to sing, so this is a great opportunity for a strong actor.
