FOL Present 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day'

alexander.jpgThe Friends of Greenwich Library will present Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day on Saturday, March 7 at 2 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. Laugh and sing along as Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair, trips on a skateboard, and 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 his teacher doesn't like his drawing of an invisible castle, the shoe store is out of the sneakers he wants, and he accidentally makes a big mess in his dad's office. There's no dessert for lunch, there's lima beans for dinner, and even worse: he has to wear his polka-dot pajamas to bed! It's enough to make Alexander want to move to Australia!

Laugh and sing along with Alexander's misadventures in this hilarious musical. Discover, along with Alexander, that sometimes, everyone has a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day. Even in Australia. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, a musical produced by Two Beans Productions, began touring in 2006. The book and lyrics for Alexander were writ ten by Judith Viorst, who also wrote the original book upon which the musical is based. Music is by Shelly Markham, with direction by Rob Barron (TheatreworksUSA's Charlotte's Web, Ramona Quimby and Romeo & Juliet) and choreography by Cynthia Thole (TheatreworksUSA's Mike Mulligan, Ferdinand the Bull).

This 60-minute, intermissionless musical, featuring five actors, is appropriate for ages 3-9.

Pick up free assigned tickets (limit 8 per person) at the Cole Auditorium door starting at noon, then return when doors open at 1:50 p.m. This concert; along with many other free lectures, author talks and workshops; is made possible by contributions to the Friends of the Greenwich Library. For more information, please contact the Friends Office at 622-7938.
