Childsplay, Arizona's professional theatre company for young audiences and families, is delighted to bring back Junie B in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! for the holidays. Adapted from Barbara Park's series of books about Junie B. Jones, First Grader, the play opens Nov. 20 and runs through Dec. 24 in Tempe. A preview performance, with general admission discount tickets available, will be on Nov. 14. The show is recommended for young people age five and above and their families.

Based primarily on Barbara Park's book Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells!, the play also draws from two other books in the Junie B., First Grader series - Shipwrecked and Dumb Bunny. Junie B's first grade class is putting on a holiday program, which reminds Junie B of the time her class did a Columbus Day pageant and things went awfully wrong. Room One is also having a Secret Santa gift exchange and Junie B draws the name of her nemesis, May. The pageant and the gift exchange precipitate a crisis for Junie B that only she can resolve.

Performances will take place at the Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe. The Steele Foundation Storybook Preview will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, and tickets are $12 general admission. Regular show times will be at 1 and 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays Nov. 20 to Dec. 19, 2 and 7 p.m. Dec. 21 to 23 and 2 p.m. Dec. 24. Tickets - $25 for adults and $20 for children, students and seniors - are available by calling (480) 350-2822 (press 0 for box office) or visiting www.childsplayaz.org/boxoffice.
