SYNOPSIS

Junie B. Jones is back! Based on the bestselling books, the saga of the wisecracking first-grader continues in Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School, a goofy and heartwarming follow-up to Junie B. Jones, The Musical.
A self-appointed expert on all things first grade, Junie B. is determined to write the ultimate guide – Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School. As she deals with writer’s block and constantly getting into trouble, Junie B. quickly realizes that she still has a lot to learn. Featuring new, upbeat songs from Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich (Junie B. Jones, The Musical, Dear Edwina), Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School is a hilarious, whole-hearted show about owning up to your mistakes and how nobody is ever done learning.
