Season 15: Theatre for Young Audiences

April 16 - May 5, 2024


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. Not only does he 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. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. 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. 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.

"Alexander... is a sure-fire audience pleaser. With its delightful tunes and fun characters, it is a show that reaches all age groups from pre-K to grown-ups." –Stage to Stage, Inc., New Orleans, La.

“[IT’S] a light-hearted, ridiculously hilarious show… [and] a joy for anyone to watch. The show is a guaranteed good time!” -DC Theater Arts
