HSRT Children's Performance Troupe Adds Shows

By popular demand, Hope Summer Repertory Theatre's Children's Performance Troupe (CPT) has added two additional showings of "Junie B. Jones and A Little Monkey Business" on July 31 and August 7 at 10:30 a.m.

Junie B. Jones, from the popular children's book series, is an outspoken kindergartener who is going to be a sister for the very first time. Initially acting jealous of the new addition to the family, Junie B. Jones overhears her grandmother calling her new baby brother the "cutest little monkey," and her mind goes wild! Could this new family member win her the best show-and-tell award? Joan Cushing, writer of this show's music and lyrics, is also the adapter of last year's sold-out hit, "Miss Nelson is Missing."

The Children's Performance Troupe's second show is "Go, Dog. Go!" and opens on July 18. Based on the book by P.D. Eastman, "Go, Dog Go!" is a tale of a variety of dogs: big dogs, little dogs, dogs that talk, yellow dogs, blue dogs, red dogs, and dogs that drive. This lively comedic and musical performance will have the whole family howling.

Tickets for both shows have been selling out fast! Make sure to reserve yours by stopping stop by the ticket office at DeVos Fieldhouse located at 222 Fairbanks Ave. between Ninth and 11th streets. Hours are Monday-Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased from the ticket office located in the DeWittCenter, on the HopeCollege campus, at the corner of 12th Street and Columbia Avenue.
