Weekend To-Do: 'Junie B. Jones and a Little Monkey Business'

Posted By on Fri, Oct 24, 2008 at 10:13 AM

7 p.m., Arkansas Children's Theatre. $11-$14.

Try this on for a mix-up. When Junie B. Jones, the irrepressible hero in Barbara Park's children's series, hears her grandmother describe her newborn brother as “the cutest little monkey” she ever saw, she takes her at her word and starts contemplating the payoff: A real, live monkey? It'll be the best kindergarten show-and-tell ever. Soon, she's scoring loot from her friends for the first look — Lucille's locket, Grace's ring, Lucille's red sweater, Grace's high tops, Lucille's red chair. But extra snack tickets, also extorted, land her in the principal's office. The musical continues through Nov. 9 with performances 7 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
