Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
book and lyrics by Judith Viorst
Field-trips: Tuesday – Friday, October 16 – November 2. Shows at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.
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.

Mad Libs Live!
Field-trips: Tuesday – Friday, February 6 – 23. Shows at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.
Mad Libs Live! Is the new musical based on the most popular word game of all time! Our story begins at the finals of Teen Superstars, the live TV show that will determine the most popular singing group of Blankville Central High. Virtuoso, GoGo, Geyser, and Merrily seem to have nothing in common – until just before air time they realize that their songs are missing words! Just like the popular game, our gang fills in the blanks with words from the audience! This truly interactive musical changes at every performance – thanks to you! Will GoGo get the girl? Will Geyser make new friends? Will Merrily come out of her shell? Will Virtuoso get out of the spotlight? And who will be the next teen superstar? There’s only one way to find out: Mad Libs Live!
