SPONSORED POST: The classic book series, Junie B. Jones comes to life for six performances December 7 – 9 in Wellesley. Presented at Babson’s Sorenson Center auditorium, Wellesley Theatre Project‘s (WTP) production of Junie B. Jones, Jr. is high-energy fun for the whole family. The musical follows Junie as she navigates her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store including best friends, new friends, and trouble reading the blackboard in Mr. Scary’s class.
