If your kids are impatiently waiting for the holidays, you’re in luck! The White Plains Performing Arts Center is presenting Junie B. in Jingle Bells Batman Smells to kick off the holiday season. On Black Friday, take a rest from holiday shopping, and enjoy a fun-filled show of hilarious hijinks from everyone’s favorite first grader.
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 her fun. When Junie B. draws May's name for Secret Santa, she comes up with the perfect plan to teach her nemesis a lesson! Will the Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill interfere before Junie B. can give May what she deserves?
Created for young audiences and performed by adults, Junie B. in Jingle Bells Batman Smells is holiday hilarity for the whole family based on the best-selling book series by Barbara Park. “When I first read the script I literally laughed out loud,” says Director, Ariana Moses. “It’s a great Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) piece because it really speaks to kids, much like the original book series does.”
Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! stars John Cedric Anderson, Emily Ann Banks, Alexandra Imbroci-Viera, Chris Manetakis, Sergio F. Marroquin, April Elle Nuovo, Jenna San Antonio, and Alexander Scelso. It is directed by Ariana Moses and stage managed by Allison Schneider. It runs November 24th at 11:00AM and 2:00PM at the White Plains Performing Arts Center, located on the third level of City Center off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains.
