The Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) opens the second half of its 2016-2017 season with Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook, running from January 20-February 26, 2017 at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts.

Celebrate the regional premiere of this beloved character’s newest tale with DCT,  Young people will participate in a Junie B. Jones Lost and Found Adventure, wherein they will help her find a very valuable item. There will also be face painting, cookies from Tiff’s Treats, giveaways, and more on opening night

A Whole New Side of Junie B.

In this regional premiere, a whole new side of the world’s funniest kindergartner is brought to life as she learns about right and wrong while she celebrates the differences in her friends. During the run of the show, children and their families are encouraged to serve others by bringing in donations for the S.M. Wright Foundation’s Beds for Kids program, in the spirit of helping all Dallas children.

Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook centers on Junie B. and the black furry mittens that her Grampa Frank Miller gives to her as a gift. But one day at recess, a rotten thief steals them! As Junie B. makes her way to the principal’s office to report them being stolen, she finds a cool pen on the floor. Not to mention she’s been trying to get to know Handsome Warren, the new boy in

As Junie B. makes her way to the principal’s office to report them being stolen, she finds a cool pen on the floor. Not to mention she’s been trying to get to know Handsome Warren, the new boy in class whose first impression of Junie B. is that she is a total “nutball.” Junie B.’s sense of right and wrong is tested in this comical tale that also shows us all how a diverse circle of friends gets along.

Junie B. is a one of a kind! She has such an interesting take on the world – especially the way she handles language! She is a delightful work in progress. But Junie B. is accepting of the uniqueness in others as well,” said Nancy Schaeffer, director of JUNIE B. JONES IS NOT A CROOK. Schaeffer will call upon actress Mary McElree to play Junie B. Jones for the second time; McElree previously played the spunky character in the holiday tale JUNIE B. IN JINGLE BELLS, BATMAN SMELLS.

Recommended for ages 5 and up

Ticket Prices: $15-$28.
Weekday Student Matinee shows also available Tuesdays through Fridays.
