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

"I went to sleep with gum in my mouth, and now there's gum in my hair, and when I got out of bed this morning, I tripped on the skateboard, and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running, and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day." This wonderfully fun musical teaches children of all ages to share their feelings and reminds us all that bad days can happen to anyone - even in Australia! Recommended for Kindergarten and up. Children under the age of 3 (including sleeping babies) not allowed in the theater.

The production is directed by Robin Robinson with musical direction by Eduardo Guzman. Daniel Edwards will play Alexander. The rest of the cast includes Danté Anderson, Chioke Coreathers, Cody House, Bette Le, Madison Mapes, and Natalie Nassar.

The design team is Liz Freese (costumes), Nicholas Graves (set), Bryan Ealey (lighting), Emily Curley (sound), and Mark B. Robbins (props). Choreography is by Elizabeth Tinder. Danielle Docwra is the production stage manager. Saraiah Gonzalez is the performance stage manager.
