2. Realm of Terror Opening Weekend

3. Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook

“Finders keepers, losers weepers” is the theme of the newest James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts play. “Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook” is based on best-selling author, Barbara Park’s children’s book series. The protagonist, Junie B. Jones, is known as the world’s funniest kindergartner but things suddenly become less humorous when someone steals her furry black mittens. After the theft, Jones finds a unique color pen and determines she will repay her mitten mugger by keeping the writing utensil. Maybe the handsome new kid will fall for her if she shows him the pen, or will he think she’s a crook? See how the story unfolds in the humorous and touching tale.
