Based on the best classic book by Judith Viorst, we’ll all laugh and sing along with Alexander’s misadventures in this hilarious musical, while also discovering how each of us can get through our own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Have you ever had a really rotten day? Alexander’s day is sure looking pretty bad… He wakes up with gum in his hair, his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he’s not his best friend anymore, he trips on a skateboard, and then he accidentally drops his sweater in the sink—and all before breakfast! Alexander can already tell— it’s going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! 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.
