Skippyjon Jones.jpgIf you're a parent (and you must be, since you're reading this) you've probably heard of Skippyjon Jones, the high-energy the main character in the best-selling books by Judy Schachner. Here's a chance to see Skippyjon's antics in a whole new way -- in a musical! In this show, one of the Magic Ark Performing Arts series at the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts in Newton, Skippyjon and friends are brought to life like you've never imagined. Skippyjon Jones wants to be the best chihuahua ever. The only problem? He's actually a Siamese cat! Before you can say "holy guacamole," Skippyjon's wild imagination transforms him into El Skippito Friskito, the greatest canine sword fighter in Mexico. But will El Skippito be dog enough to defeat the fearsome Bumblebeeto? Sun., Jan 27, 11 a.m. & 1 p.m. Ages 3 and up with an adult. $13; members, $10. Leventhal-Sidman JCC, 333 Nahanton Street, Newton.
