 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

A Musical

April 1thru 17th, 2011 

Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a musical adaptation of Judith Viorst’s tale of one of America’s feistiest characters. When Alexander’s already trying day goes from bad to worse (lima beans for dinner! Ick!) it’s enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. Alexander's struggles with life's daily dramas will not only entertain but educate young audiences as they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days happen—even in Australia.
