Character Breakdown:

Junie B. Jones
Junie B. Jones is a spunky, intelligent girl who is starting the first grade as our show begins. Determined and a bit impulsive, Junie B. finds herself at the center of many classroom antics.
Gender: Female | Vocal range top: E5 | Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Daddy
Daddy is Junie B.’s encouraging father who always looks on the bright side. Gender: Male | Vocal range top: D4 | Vocal range bottom: A2

Mother
Mother is Junie B.’s no-nonsense mom. She can be tough on Junie B., but it is all out of love. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: D5 | Vocal range bottom: A3

Lucille
Lucille is Junie B.’s former best friend who has moved on to new friendships. Poised, put together, and probably a bit spoiled, Lucille controls and plans everything she does – quite the opposite of Junie B.’s bold impulsiveness.  Gender: Female | Vocal range top: C#5 | Vocal range bottom: F3

Camille and Chenille
Lucille’s new best friends, Camille and Chenille are twins. Just like Lucille, they are well dressed and very composed. These two roles are great for performers with bright energy who are also good singers. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: C5 | Vocal range bottom: Bb3

Grace
Grace is another one of Junie B.’s former best friends. She is not as calculated as Lucille, she has simply made new friends apart from Junie B. This is a perfect role for a young performer who can portray a kind and laid-back character and has a good voice. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: C5 | Vocal range bottom: C4

Mr. Woo
Mr. Woo is the supervisor on the school bus. This featured role is great for an actor with a commanding speaking voice as he is in charge of corralling the Kids on Bus. Gender: Male

Bobbi Jean Piper
Bobbi Jean Piper is Grace’s new friend. Bobbi Jean happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and unintentionally ends up on Junie B.’s bad side. This is a nice cameo role for a new performer. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: G4 | Vocal range bottom: B3

Herb
Herb is Junie B.’s new best friend. An endlessly kind and charming little boy, Herb easily balances out Junie B.’s more demanding side. Gender: Male | Vocal range top: D5 | Vocal range bottom: A3

May
May is the teacher’s pet. Eager to prove her brilliance, May does not prioritize making friends with any of her classmates, and they do not mind. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: C5 | Vocal range bottom: C4

Lennie and José
Lennie and José are classmates and friends of Junie B. and Herb. These two roles are good features for actors with good energy and nice voices. Gender: Male | Vocal range top: C5 | Vocal range bottom: A3

Mr. Scary
Mr. Scary is the Room One teacher. Unlike his name suggests, Mr. Scary is a supportive and encouraging teacher. This is a perfect role to showcase a mature and energetic actor. Gender: Male | Vocal range top: Bb3 | Vocal range bottom: Bb2

Sheldon
Sheldon is definitely not the most popular kid in class. Plagued by a myriad of allergies and a general clumsiness, Sheldon’s good intentions often end in disaster. Gender: Male | Vocal range top: E4 | Vocal range bottom: B2

Shirley
Shirley is a featured soloist in a few of the School Kids’ songs. Gender: Female | Vocal range top: C5 | Vocal range bottom: B2

Mrs. Gutzman
Mrs. Gutzman is the sweet old lunch lady, revered by all of the School Kids.  Gender: Female

Ensemble
The Ensemble consists of Tickle the dog, the School Kids, Lunch Student 1, Kids on Bus, Student 1, Student 2, Student 3, Student 4, Student 5, Lunch Server and Cheerleaders. These are great roles for anyone who wants to be involved in the production! Gender: Both
