Family Programming Returns to Adelphi University with Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School


Special family programming returns to the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) with the Theatreworks USA production of Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School. AUPAC has become one of the best places to see world-class artists and family programming in an intimate atmosphere on Long Island. Based on the best-selling children’s books, this youthful, endearing and thoughtful piece will be performed on Sunday, October 2, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. on the Westermann Stage in the Concert Hall located at AUPAC, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. This engaging musical performance is specially designed to delight children in grades K-5 and their families.

Based on the book series by Barbara Park, Junie B. has been going to school for over one-and-a-half years, who better to write the book on everything you need to know? From bus rules to band-aids, carpools to cookies, Junie B. and friends deliver the definitive word on surviving and thriving in style. With a jillion tips, tricks and trip ups, Junie B. shares her hard-won expertise and shows us all how school is sometimes scary, sometimes superfun and always something to sing about. With music by Zina Goldrich and lyrics by Marcy Heisler, this fun afternoon of theatre is not to be missed.
