Alexander and the Bad Day

Book and Lyrics by Judith Viorst. Music by Shelly Markham

Adapted from the book by Judith Viorst
May 5 – 21, 2017

For every kid who has begged “read it just one more time!” after reaching the last page of this beloved story, here’s a musical adaptation that will offer up a favorite anti-hero in an marvelous new way. And for those who have not yet met the beleaguered Alexander, beset by the worst set of troubles a kid could ever find crammed into one day,  get ready to enjoy some sympathetic chuckles and more than a few outright belly laughs during this lively production. With a day that includes bossy brothers, lima beans for dinner and kissing on tv, Alexander’s struggles with life’s daily dramas will entertain and educate young audiences as they identify with the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to realize that bad days happen—even in Australia.
