***Giveaway is closed! We have a winner!***

Save the date, Smarties. Junie B. is in town with Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s latest production and your kiddoes will LOOOOOOOOVE this performance. Yes, the Junie B. Jones series can be controversial with parents. She’s sassy. The grammar/language is not perfect…. Some people interpret her as being rude and disrespectful. It is written in the point of view of a kindergartner. Junie B.’s character celebrates everything about being 6 years old! She doesn’t mean to be disrespectful. She is just an active 6-year old little girl questioning life as it is being thrown at her. So, I beg you, if you are one of those parents that are on the fence about going to see this play – GIVE IT A CHANCE! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!! Okay with that said, here is my review…

Junie B. Stole the Show. From the minute the play started, the audience was captured. Uncontrollable laughs from every direction. Even the parents were giggling. They did an amazing job presenting a difficult topic and making it fun, relatable and hilarious. The cast was impeccable. You forget that they are adults playing 6-year old children. I would take the boys again. That is how much they liked it!!! As a parent, I loved it. I felt it captured the essence of childhood. It has a playful spirit. It is so much fun!

BRAVO, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte you have once again received the SMARTY SEAL of APPROVAL!!!
