Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Book and Lyrics by Judith Viorst. Music by Shelly Markham.

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. Young audiences will identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days happen.

The Frog Prince

Adaptation by Catherine Gray

Actor and playwright, Catherine Gray, has created a charming play based on a well-known children’s story. When the princess loses her golden ball down the well, only a little frog can help her. But when the frog asks for a kiss in return the princess goes to greater lengths to avoid him. The result is a fun and funny look at what happens when we get what we think we want,. This hilarious take on the classic tale not only pokes fun at our human foibles, but at the very nature of the fairy tale as well.
