Alexander and the Very Bad Day

Have you ever had a really rotten day? Alexander has… He wakes up with gum in his hair, he trips on a skateboard, and then he accidentally drops his sweater in the sink – all before breakfast! Alexander can already tell – it’s going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day!

Alexander’s day continues to go downhill as he gets smushed in the car on the way to school, his teacher doesn’t like his drawing of an invisible castle, and Paul doesn’t want to be his friend anymore. There’s no dessert for lunch, there’s lima beans for dinner, and even worse: there’s kissing on television! It’s enough to make you want to move to Australia!

Laugh and sing along with Alexander’s misadventures in this hilarious musical, featuring book and lyrics by Judith Viorst, author of the best-selling classic book. Discover along with Alexander that sometimes, everyone has a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
