Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Book and Lyrics by Judith Viorst, Music by Shelly Markham
This delightful musical adaptation of the popular children's book follows feisty Alexander and a series of unfortunate events that occurs throughout his day. Waking up with gum in his hair, unwanted cavities and no dessert with lunch are just a few of the obstacles he encounters. Alexander allows young audiences to identify with him and ultimately reveals that bad days happen to everyone-even in Australia.
