NOTE:  Actors are required to be 10 & up.  All ages below are a suggestion, and can be adapted to suit available actors.  Total of 10+ actors are needed.  

JUNIE B. JONES – a first grader; precocious, passionate, opinionated, a bossy leader; doesn’t understand why things can’t always go exactly her wait; a bit of a brat, but an endearing one


MAY – a classmate; the rule-abiding, class tattle-tale who doesn’t have any friends; prissy; Type A


HERB – Junie B.’s best friend and frequent defender; he easily loses things


LUCILLE – a rich kid; snooty; loves frilly dresses and never shies away from reminding everyone how ridiculously rich her family is


JOSE – a classmate; the most practical of the Room 1 students (actor who knows/willing to learn to speak Spanish)


SHELDON – a classmate; a bit of an odd duck; does know the meaning of “too much info”; very phobic (germaphobic; stage fright)


MR. SCARY (late-30s-50s) – the teacher; sometimes seemingly omniscient in his dealings with his class of first graders; frequently long-suffering; a caring teacher but one who won’t let you get away with much


GRANDPA MILLER (50+) – Junie B.’s grandfather; loving, somewhat indulgent and also deeply amused by his granddaughter; 1 scene


ELF ELLEN (30s/40s) – a volunteer parent; a little perturbed by Herb & Sheldon’s antics; 1 scene & 1 additional appearance


MRS. TOOT (40-60) – the enthusiastic choral teacher; 2 scenes & 1 voiceover


VOICE OF PHILIP JOHNNY BOB – a stuffed elephant; what does the voice of a first grader’s imaginary stuffed elephant BFF sound like? Open to creative interpretations.  Could be a squeaky, child-like voice (or an actual child) or a robust James Earl Jones-type. 2 scenes
