FLORIDA REP EDUCATION'S Upcoming 2019-2020 Theatre for Young Audiences Shows
It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting!
Recommended for grades PK-4th
QUOTES FROM KODY
“We couldn’t be more excited for next season’s lineup of professional TYA tours that will be visiting schools all over SW Florida.”
“This year’s titles will take students on a wild ride through magical realms of Narnia, kingdoms and shipwrecks of Twelfth Night, and the everyday hardships of Elementary School of Junie B. Jones.”
“Dates to book are limited so be sure to reach out to our Outreach manager; Anna McCullers at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a production for your school today!”
Based on the novel by C.S. Lewis

That master of imaginative enchantment, C.S. Lewis, has created a unique world and he invites children to walk into it and enjoy both surprise and adventure. An old house in rural England becomes the home base for four children who wander into an incredible country through an old wardrobe and help the country return to summer. In the incredible Narnia, they make friends with the frightened forest people who have almost given up hope for the return of good King Aslan, their one true ruler.
Adapted by Bill Kincaid
Recommended for grades 9-12th
Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s comedies about an unusual love triangle and the fictional land of Illyria. The madcap adventure demonstrates just how far we are willing to go to find the one we love and to discover how to love one’s self. Even though Twelfth Night was written over 400 years ago, many of its comedic aspects are still funny today. In fact, many of our modern movies (Mrs. Doubtfire, White Chicks, and She’s the Man) have the same premise as Twelfth Night does, with a man or woman having to dress as the opposite gender in pursuing the one they love.
