Junie B. Jones Jr. Production Team Interview with Technical Director, Evan Park!

Q: What was your favorite book series when you were young?

A: It's always difficult to pick just one. The Hardy Boys was my first series read. I got hooked when I found some of my dad's old books at my Memaw's house during grade school. This was quickly followed up by Harry Potter, Tamora Pierce and a few others.

Q: If you could go back in time, what is the one thing you would tell yourself when you were in the first grade?

A: Not everyone is going to like you. No matter how hard you try. And you aren't going to like everyone either. That's okay. You don't have to be friends with everyone, but showing respect (even to those you don't always get along with) gets you farther than succumbing to your dislikes. True friends are hard to find, but you'll only appreciate them all the more once you have them.

Q: What would you bring to show and tell for the cast if you could bring one thing and why? 

A: My dog. Hands down. She's the sweetest dog in the world and always leaves a room with more smiles than were in it when she entered. She's always knows where she can get attention and isn't shy to claim it, but also knows who needs it and isn't scared to share some love.
