Junie B. Jones Jr. Theatre Production

at Ballantyne Arts Center

Junie B. Jones, The Musical is a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books, brought to life in a genuinely comical musical. It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend, Lucille, doesn't want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting. Featuring a tremendously loveable character and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones will capture the audience members' hearts just as the books captivated an entire generation of students. Join us at The Ballantyne Arts Center to witness our young actors in this seriously fun show!

Footloose Theatre Production

at Ballantyne Arts Center

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. Join us at The Ballantyne Arts Center to see our talented teens rock the stage.
