THE KENNEDY CENTER PRESENTS "ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY"
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Kennedy Center will present "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" at the Viterbo College Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 3 p.m.
In this adaptation of her popular children’s series, 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, his mother forgets to pack him dessert and his best friend decides Alexander’s not his best friend anymore. These struggles with life’s daily dramas will entertain and educate young audiences as they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days do happen.
Following the show, Ronald McDonald will make a special appearance, along with the cast, to meet audience members. The performance is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin.
"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" is a part of the Kennedy Center’s Imagination Celebration on Tour, which attempts to create original shows that are educational, fun and provide a foundation for the life-long appreciation of the performing arts.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. For more information, contact the Viterbo College Box Office at 608-796-3100.
