Jones in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells!” runs approximately 60 minutes and is appropriate for children 3 and older.
Chicago’s Emerald City Theatre is presenting this adaptation of Barbara Park’s popular Junie B. Jones children’s books. In Junie B. Jones’ world, things are very clear. Christmas means you get presents, elf costumes are awesome, and May is a blabbermouth tattletale. Things in first grade, and approaching holidays, are going well until Junie B. pulls May as her Secret Santa. With Santa watching her like a hawk, what will Junie B. do? “Junie B. Jones in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” explores how families can practice being generous and giving, even when it can be challenging during the holiday season.
