The Coastal Educational Foundation has received a $2,000 grant from Target to support presentation of the musical "Junie B. Jones," on Thursday, Feb. 2 and 3 at Coastal Carolina University for school children from Horry and Georgetown counties.
The musical by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich and produced by TheatreworksUSA is adapted from the series of children's books by Barbara Park. The series chronicles a girl entering the first grade.
The play will be seen by approximately 3,100 students, ages kindergarten to sixth grade, from the following schools: Carolina Forest Elementary, Myrtle Beach Elementary, Loris Elementary, Kingston Elementary, Waccamaw Elementary, South Conway Elementary, Socastee Elementary, North Myrtle Beach Elementary, Homewood Elementary, St. Andrew Catholic School, Myrtle Beach Primary, Seaside Elementary and Palmetto Bays Elementary.
The Coastal Educational Foundation is a nonprofit corporation that receives and disburses charitable gifts in support of Coastal Carolina University. The foundation was established in 1954 for the purpose of advancing higher learning in Horry County and was instrumental in the creation of Coastal. The foundation meets quarterly.
