Kayla Lansing, Jordan Webster-Moore, Helene DeVine, Simon Khoury, and Jonathan J.J. Johnson in Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman SmellsArriving for the 10 a.m. production of St. Ambrose University’s Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells on December 3, what first caught my eye were the big yellow school buses parked outside, and I realized, “Ah, yes, I’m going back to elementary school today.” (This was a scheduled school performance not open to the general public.)

With that in mind, I felt I needed to enlist the help of my family’s resident Junie B. expert, eight-year-old Madison, to adequately review the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s production of Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. (Madison is, after all, the show’s target audience, as opposed to this 37-year-old, balding male.) I suspected that if she was pleased with the play, I would be, too.
