Characters:
JUNIE B. JONES
Junie B. Jones is 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. Cast an experienced actor with a strong singing voice and excellent comedic timing. Your actor must be able to balance Junie B.'s charm and precociousness so the audience cheers for her right from the start.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: Ab3-E5

DADDY
Daddy is Junie B.'s encouraging father who always looks on the bright side. Look for 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 find a performer with a nice voice who can portray Daddy's kind heart.
Gender: Male
Vocal range: A2-D4

MOTHER
Mother is Junie B.'s no-nonsense mom. She can be tough on Junie B., but it is all out of love. As with Daddy, find 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.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: A3-D5

LUCILLE
Lucille is 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. Cast a strong singer and confident actor in this role.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: F3-C#5

CAMILLE AND CHENILLE
Lucille's new best friends, Camille and Chenille are twins. Just like Lucille, they are well dressed and very composed. These two roles are great for performers with bright energy who are also good singers. Remember, the actors playing Camille and Chenille don't have to look exactly alike - so long as they are wearing matching costumes, the audience will get the idea.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: Bb3-C5

GRACE
Grace is 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. This is a perfect role for a young performer who can portray a kind and laid-back character and has a good voice.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: C4-C5

MR. WOO
Mr. Woo is the supervisor on the school bus. This featured role is great for an actor with a commanding speaking voice as he is in charge of corralling the Kids on Bus.
Gender: Male

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. This is a nice cameo role for a new performer.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: B3-G4

HERB
Herb is Junie B.'s new best friend. An endlessly kind and charming little boy, Herb easily balances out Junie B.'s more demanding side. Find a performer who has great chemistry with Junie B. Herb should be one of your stronger singers and a very likeable actor.
Gender: Male
Vocal range: A3-D5

MAY
May is 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. Cast a performer who can tap into the humor and confidence of this vibrant role.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: C4-C5

LENNIE AND JOSÉ
Lennie and José are classmates and friends of Junie B. and Herb. These two roles are good features for actors with good energy and nice voices.
Gender: Male
Vocal range: A3-C5M

MR. SCARY
Mr. Scary is the Room One teacher. Unlike his name suggests, Mr. Scary is a supportive and encouraging teacher. This is a perfect role to showcase a mature and energetic actor. Though he has a few short singing lines, they could easily be spoken if the actor isn't a strong singer.
Gender: Male
Vocal range: Bb2-Bb3

SHELDON
Sheldon is 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. Cast a great singer who can bring out the nerdy charm in this endearing role.
Gender: Male
Vocal range: B2-E4

SHIRLEY
Shirley is a featured soloist in a few of the School Kids' songs. This is perfect introductory role for a great singer who is new to acting.
Gender: Female
Vocal range: B3-C5

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.
Gender: Female

ENSEMBLE
The Ensemble consists of Tickle the dog, the School Kids, Lunch Student 1, Kids on Bus, Student 1, Student 2, Student 3, Student 4, Student 5, Lunch Server and Cheerleaders. These are great roles for anyone who wants to be involved in the production!
Gender: Both

 
Synopsis
CREDITS
Book and Lyrics by Marcy Heisler
Music by Zina Goldrich
Adapted from the JUNIE B. JONES Series of books by Barbara Park
 
OVERVIEW / SYNOPSIS
From Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the creators who brought you Dear Edwina and Dear Edwina JR., comes Junie B. Jones The Musical JR. - a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books, brought to life in a delightful adaptation created specifically for Broadway Junior performers.
 
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.
 
Featuring many lovable characters and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones JR. will capture your audiences' and Broadway Junior performers' hearts - just as the books captivated an entire generation of students.
