CAST OF CHARACTERS
Junie B Jones An independent girl in first grade. Good-natured, but holds her ground in arguments.
Herb Junie B’s best friend in Classroom 1
May Junie B’s arch enemy; always tries to get Junie B in trouble
Lucille The rich girl, very proud and thinks she’s the prettiest girl ever

Philip Johnny Bob Junie B’s stuffed elephant, who hears her secrets and talks to her
Grampa Miller Junie B’s grandfather on her mother’s side
Casting Notes: Philip Elephant and Grampa Miller appear only with Junie B. It is possible they could participate in this show and Annie if they can come at 6:00 to run their individual scenes with Junie B before Annie rehearsals begin.
Although the six child characters are in 1st grade, the play is frequently performed by older elementary students, or even high school students. Casting will depend on the age group(s) who turn out for auditions, since the 3 girls and 3 boys must look (but not necessarily be) the same age.
Production Crew Interest
Production team and stage crew are welcome to come to any of the audition dates and discuss their interest and skill. This invitation includes those interested in orchestra, costuming, set design and construction, lighting, sound, stage management, props, publicity, and many other roles. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest. All roles are volunteer, as there is no paid staff. No experience is necessary for crew work and we are happy to offer training.
