Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook ~ Dallas Children's Theater

Yesterday my daughters and I went to see Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook at Dallas Children's Theater. My daughters have been looking forward to this production ever since they saw that it was on the schedule. This production did not disappoint. 

When we walked into the theater my daughters were sent on a scavenger hunt. At each of the four clue spots they collected pieces to a coloring picture. Once they were all collected they peeled of the backs of the pieces and mounted them on a sheet. They then got to color the picture and decorate Junie's hair with a bow. Upon completion of their picture they received a magnifying glass. This pre-show activity was really fun. 

The production lasted about 1 1/2 hours with a short intermission midway through. As usual, the sets were fantastic. The acting and singing were top notch and kept my daughter's attention. 

My 8 year old said, "My favorite parts of the play were when Junie found the light up, different colored pen. She loved it so very much but inside she really knew that she should not keep it. I also liked that Junie was honest and returned it. It was funny but scary when Junie was put on jail clothes and was caught for stealing the pen."

My 10 year old said, "My favorite part of the play was the dream that Junie had."

Junie, a very outspoken kindergartener has two problems. Who stole her wonderful, furry mittens that her grandfather bought her. Also, how can she get Handsome Warren, the new boy in school, to notice her and fall in love with her. 

Dallas Children's Theater does a wonderful job with every production that they put on. Our family looks forward to attending each production! Thank you Dallas Children's Theater for helping to bring a wonderful theater experience to our community.
