Who did you despise the most growing up in our fabulous education system? The tall, chubby class bully? How about the class tattletale? Well, while you're out swimming in the success they'll never have this Christmas, why don't you take your "I'm gonna give them what I never had" kids to see the Baker Theater production of Jingle Bells, Batman Smells--adapted from the Junie B. Jones children's book series by Barbara Park--and breathe in the satisfaction that only a rich adulthood can bring. Watch as Junie B. gets to take her revenge secret-Santa style on her archrival Tattletale May while still being a good little girl this Christmas. The play opens Friday at the Dallas Children's Theater, 5938 Skillman St., and will run through December 23. For tickets ($14 to $25) and showtimes, call 214-740-0051 or visit dct.org.
