Junie B. Jones, First-Grader, is super-excited about the upcoming Holiday Sing-Along and Secret Santa gift exchange at her school. Too bad tattletale May keeps ruining all of Junie B.'s fun. 

So when Junie B. draws May's name for Secret Santa, she comes up with the perfect plan to teach her nemesis a lesson! But will the Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill interfere before she can give you-know-who what she deserves? 

A hilarious and endearing tale based on the best-selling book series by Barbara Park.

Feb 5-7, 11-13

This classic play is an emotional roller coaster between George, a college history professor and his wife Martha, daughter of the college president, and Nick, a new professor in the biology department and his wife, Honey. Illusion and reality are nebulous and never clear. 

The morals and mores of the 1950s, wherein families consisted of husband, wife and two perfect children living in the suburbs, is questioned and exposed. Alcohol is used to self-medicate, and the mental stability of all of them is in question.


George - Bill Keeton

Martha - Julie Poux

Nick - Michael Gettinger

Honey - Kiya Fix
