Directed by Artistic Director Valerie M. Mackey, the productin features Kyra Weinberger (Junie B.), Steven Eubank (Grandpa), Morgan Walker (Grace), Jackie Sass (Lucille), R.H. Wilhoit (Ricardo), and Thomas Eric Morris (Warren).
From the press release: “Junie B., pint-sized destroyer of grammar and syntax, is a precocious kindergartner who hates her middle name. As we enter the story, she is proudly showing off the furry black mittens given her by Grandpa to her friends Grace and Lucille. Although Ricardo is her current boyfriend, Junie B. hopes the mittens will attract the attention of the new boy in school Warren. During recess someone stole Junie B.’s mittens. She is upset and when she later finds a colorful pen, she decides to keep it because “Finders keepers, losers weepers.” She shows Warren her new pen, but he just thinks she is nutty! The dilemma and learning opportunity for Junie B. is whether she should keep the pen, or turn it over to lost and found. The audience learns, along with Junie B., the lesson that giving can provide.”
JUNIE B. JONES IS NOT A CROOK runs February 13th – March 24th on the H&R Block City Stage, located on level B in Union Station. Union Station is located at 30 W. Pershing Road, Kansas City, MO.
