First Stage's 'Judy Moody' brings beloved children's book to life

First Stage's "Judy Moody & Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt" opened last weekend and is bringing island fun to the Todd Wehr theater at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

Just like the characters in the beloved children's book series, this cast of characters is high-energy, spirited, and very funny.

Judy Moody, the show's main character, is a moody third grader who just wants to have an adventure worthy of telling her classmates about. (Eloise Field of the Porcupine Cast plays her role convincingly, and is somehow still very lovable.)
