The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to offer a seasonal Children’s Theatre performance at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center from 10 am to 11 am on Thursday, November 29th. Georgia Ensemble Theatre will present Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook, based on the beloved Junie B. Jones book series by Barbara Park. The program is appropriate for grades K-5.

Georgia Ensemble Theatre brings the characters from Barbara Park’s children’s book series to the stage in Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook. The play follows Junie B. Jones, a feisty six-year-old, as she navigates elementary school life. Something terrible has happened to Junie B. at school! Someone stole her new furry mittens! So when she finds a wonderful pen of many colors, she should be allowed to keep it, right? Because finders keepers, losers weepers. And guess what? There's a new boy in kindergarten and he is the handsomest. The only thing is both Grace and Lucille want him to be their boyfriend. Maybe he will love Junie B. when he sees her wonderful pen! It is okay to keep it, right? Junie B. Jones is not a crook . . . or is she? This hilarious show is sure to capture the hearts of children and adults.
