First grader Junie B. Jones can’t decide how she feels about the holidays. On the one hand, she couldn’t be more excited about her school’s holiday gift shop, especially the super-amazing Squeeze-a-Burp toy. On the other hand, her tattletale classmate May just might ruin the entire Holiday Sing-Along. When Junie B. draws May’s name for Secret Santa, she hatches a plan to give her nemesis a lump of coal while snagging the Squeeze-a-Burp for herself. Will Junie B. have a last-minute change of heart and show her true holiday spirit? A refreshing, new story for the season, this entertaining show has laughs to spare!

"I've never seen a cast that so quickly made me forget I was watching adults pretending to be little kids... A hint of grand opera, a hefty dose of burping and an undercurrent of holiday spirit - could anyone ask for more?"
- Lawrence Toppman,
The Charlotte Observer (Full Review)
"Director Ron Chisholm and his team of designers pile on the comedy ...
My wife Sue and I (plus an enthusiastic full house) felt the sensation
of unwrapping a surprise gift at ImaginOn as we beheld the onstage merits of all the Batman Smells newcomers... marvelous mayhem..."
- Perry Tannenbaum, Creative Loafing
"... a hilarious, joyful window into childhood for both adults and children alike ... Junie B. bursts into your heart and leads you on a
wild holiday adventure."
- Kelly Yale, modernparentonline.com
"Director Ron Chisholm knows how his actors should move, and move around on stage, and brings a sense of fun with various musical touches that you shouldn’t miss... Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! is an all around
delightful show that both children
and adults will enjoy."
- Ann Marie Oliva, Arts a la Mode
