Theatre Bristol announces auditions for "Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells," October 8, 9, 15 and 16 at the Theatre Bristol ARTspace, 512 State Street, Bristol, TN. Under the direction of Dottie Havlik, Junie B. will make her debut on the Theatre Bristol stage and bring holiday cheer in her own spunky way. No preparation is required to audition and roles are available for men, women, and children. Show details, audition times, and rehearsal dates are available at www.TheatreBristol.org/audition.

Written by Allison Gregory and distributed by Playscripts, this first-grader in the title role is really excited about the upcoming holiday gift exchange at her school. Tattletale May is always ruining Junie B.'s fun, so when Junie B. draws May's name things get interesting. "Will the Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill interfere before she can give you-know-who what she deserves? A hilarious and endearing tale based on the best-selling book series by Barbara Park (Playscripts)."

Havlik is herself excited to bring this show to the stage for the holidays, most recently directing the River's Way "Three Times Three" production, "The Adventures of Madeline," and "Charlotte's Web," as well as performing and writing many plays over the years.

"June B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" opens December 1, and runs for three weekends, Fridays at 7:30 pm, Saturdays at 10:30 am and 5:30 pm, and Sundays at 2:30 pm, closing on December 17. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students, and available at www.Theatre Bristol.org.
