Meet the funniest girl in Room Nine – Junie B. Jones! A terrible thing happened to Junie B. —someone took her new black furry mittens! And plus also they kept them! When Junie B. finds a wonderful pen on the floor, she should be allowed to keep it too, because “finders keepers.” There’s also a new boy in school, and he’s the handsomest boy Junie B. has ever seen. Unfortunately, Lucille and That Grace want him for a boyfriend too, and Handsome Warren just thinks Junie B. is a nutball. Whatever is Junie B. to do?

Animal Farm. Adapted by Ian Wooldridge from the book by George Orwell. Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois. May 12 – 21, 2017. Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, 325 W. Walnut Street. After revolting against the reign of their negligent human master, the animals of Mr. Jones’s farm create their own ideal society in which all animals are equal and rules are set by democratic vote. It’s all working pretty well, until the allure of power leads the animals to a chilling fate. ANIMAL FARM illustrates how new tyranny replaces old and power corrupts even the noblest of causes. For families with young people ages 12 – 17 and up.
