26 roles

Junie B. JonesFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Cast an experienced actor with a strong singing voice and excellent comedic timing. Your actor must be able to balance Junie B.'s charm and precociousness so the audience cheers for her right from the start. Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: Ab3

DaddyMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

Daddy is Junie B.’s encouraging father who always looks on the bright side. Look for an actor who can comfortably portray an adult figure in a world full of young school kids. Daddy sings a song with Junie B. and Mother, so find a performer with a nice voice who can portray Daddy’s kind heart. Vocal range top: D4 Vocal range bottom: A2

MotherFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

Mother is Junie B.’s no-nonsense mom. She can be tough on Junie B., but it is all out of love. As with Daddy, find a performer who can play a more mature person. Mother is a perfect role for someone with a good voice who can portray a supportive parent. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: A3

LucilleFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Cast a strong singer and confident actor in this role. Vocal range top: C#5 Vocal range bottom: F3

Camille and ChenilleFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Remember, the actors playing Camille and Chenille don’t have to look exactly alike – so long as they are wearing matching costumes, the audience will get the idea. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: Bb3

GraceFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: C4

Mr. WooMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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.

Bobbi Jean PiperFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Vocal range top: G4 Vocal range bottom: B3

HerbMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Find a performer who has great chemistry with Junie B. Herb should be one of your stronger singers and a veœry likeable actor. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: A3

MayFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Cast a performer who can tap into the humor and confidence of this vibrant role. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: C4

Lennie and JoséMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: A3

Mr. ScaryMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Though he has a few short singing lines, they could easily be spoken if the actor isn’t a strong singer. Vocal range top: Bb3 Vocal range bottom: Bb2

SheldonMale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

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. Cast a great singer who can bring out the nerdy charm in this endearing role. Vocal range top: E4 Vocal range bottom: B2

ShirleyFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

Shirley is a featured soloist in a few of the School Kids’ songs. This is perfect introductory role for a great singer who is new to acting. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: B2

Mrs. GutzmanFemale6-12 y.o.All ethnicities

Mrs. Gutzman is the sweet old lunch lady, revered by all of the School Kids. Cast a mature performer who can capture her warm, grandmotherly nature. Mrs. Gutzman does not have to sing, so this is a great opportunity for a strong actor.
