‘Junie B’ play set for ZPAC


The Casa Mañana Theatre-produced tour of “Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” is set for 6:30 p.m. Nov. 30 performance at the Zionsville Performing Arts Center.

The story centers on first-grader Junie B from the “Junie B. Jones” book series. All of the students in Room One are happily creating the perfect holiday party. But how is Junie B. supposed to enjoy anything when she has drawn the name of her nemesis, Tattletale May, for her secret Santa gift? But wait, the secret Santa gift is the perfect opportunity to give May exactly what she deserves, maybe. The show provides a lesson about giving during the holiday season

Jones), Gazelle Garcia (Mr. Toot/Jose), Joshua Sherman (Mr. Scary), Susannah Metzger (Elf Ellen/Lucille), Bradley McKinney (PJB/Sheldon), Tori Micaletti (May) and Sam McCalla (Grampa/Herb). The play is directed by Joe Sturgeon.
