HILLSBORO ­— Myers Dinner Theatre is excited to continue their tradition of entertaining Theatre for Young Audiences with the hilarious Junie B. in Jungle Bella, Batman Smells!

Junie B. Jones, First-Grader, is super-excited about the upcoming Holiday Sing-Along and Secret Santa gift exchange at her school. Too bad tattletale May keeps ruining all of Junie B.’s fun. So when Junie B. draws May’s name for Secret Santa, she comes up with the perfect plan to teach her nemesis a lesson!
