Junie B. Jones, Jr. The Musical
Knoxville Children’s Theatre

Knoxville Children’s Theatre will present Junie B. Jones The Musical JR., a delightful musical adaption from four of the Junie B. Jones series of best-selling books by Barbara Park. This new version is witty and charming with lyrics by Marcy Heisler and music by Zina Goldrich.

It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade, where many changes are in store: Junie's best friend, Lucille, has found new best friends and Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting. Junie B. Jones The Musical JR. is a heartwarming show which follows a tremendously loveable girl as she learns growing up is scary, but it’s also kind of fun.

The live musical will be performed February 21 through March 8, Thursdays and Fridays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM, with one Sunday evening show on Sunday, March 8th at 7 PM.

Marble City Opera: Pinocchio
Sat Feb 1, 11 AM
Lawson McGhee Library, 500 W Church Ave, Knoxville, TN 37902
An operatic version of the children’s literary classic, Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, based on scenes from operas by W.A. Mozart, G. Donizetti, J. Offenbach, and G.B. Pergolesi.
Stepping into a new and unknown world, Pinocchio is deceived by Wolf and Cate and persuaded to disobey his father by skipping school in order to meet Dr. Dulcamara, a loathsome puppeteer. Realizing the puppet’s value, Dulcamara holds Pinocchio captive, intending to have him perform with his miraculous mechanical doll, Olympia. Puppet and doll become friends, and when Dulcamara breaks Olympia in a fit of rage, Pinocchio runs home to admit his disobedience and ask his father’s forgiveness. Accompanied by a policeman (and an optional chorus of children-police), Pinocchio and his dad lead the authorities to Wolf, Cat and Dulcamara, and the bad guys are run out of town. As Pinocchio resolves to always tell the truth and share his problems with trusted grownups, he and his father head home to repair Olympia and begin life anew as a family of three.

Tickets are free and may be reserved at the Facebook event page.

Marble Springs State Historic Site is the last home and farm of John Sevier, Tennessee’ s first governor, who was elected in 1796. Sevier served six terms as Tennessee governor in Knoxville, the state’s first capital city. He also acted as the first and only governor of the short-lived state of Franklin. Sevier was a congressman from the Eastern District for four terms, a high-ranking officer in the North Carolina militia, and a hero at the 1780 battle of Kings Mountain against the British. Farmer, trader, land speculator, soldier, politician, husband, and father of 18 children, John Sevier embodied the pioneer spirit of the day. When he passed away in 1815, the approximate 350-acre Marble Springs had been the home he shared with second wife Catherine Sherrill, or “Bonny Kate”, and his youngest children for more than 15 years. Named for its picturesque and soothing springs and the Tennessee “pink marble” quarried nearby, the site features a period tavern, kitchen, cabin, loom house, and spring house that help interpret Tennessee’s late 18th and early 19th century history
