Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

4 Male, 3 Female

Judith Viorst & Shelly Markham Price: $10.95

Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day

To be quite honest, it's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

But then, everybody has bad days, sometimes

In this delightful adaptation of her popular book, Judith Viorst sets Alexander's rather trying life to music and brings to the stage one of America's feistiest characters

Not only does Alexander wake up with gum in his hair, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore

And if that's not bad enough, Alexander's brothers don't have any cavities but he does

And just when it can't get any worse, there are lima beans for supper and yuck! kissing on TV

It is 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

Commissioned and premiered by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
