Alexander is having a bad day, a terrible day even. His day is so bad; it’s horrible, no good. It’s just a very bad day all together.
Starting Fri. Feb. 5, the Valdosta and VSU communities are invited to share in Alexander’s bad day by attending a performance of the play, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is a musical adaptation of Judith Viorst’s popular children’s book of the same title.
Casey Harney, freshman theatre major and cast member for “Alexander,” says that although the target audience is elementary school children, everyone should see this play “because we’ve all had bad days so it’s really comforting and you get a big laugh out of it.”
The cast and crew hope that the way Alexander copes with his bad day will educate and inspire young audience members. According to the synopsis on VSU Theatre’s website, “Alexander’s struggles with life’s daily dramas will not only entertain but educate young audiences… encouraging them to share their feelings and realize that bad days happen.”
As a tour production, it will also be performed at various area schools. “Alexander” will be performed in the Lab Theatre on the second floor of the Fine Arts building on Fri. Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sat. Feb. 6 at 10:30 a.m.
