PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Alexander's bad day has just gotten worse. His parents announce that they are moving to a new town, where there are no kids his age for one thousand miles. At least that’s what Alexander thinks. So he’s putting his foot down and he is NOT going to move. The sequel to last season’s hit, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, once again stars Greg Morris as Alexander. For kids four and up.

Another Good Day

Hi. I’m five-and-a-half now, and I’d like all my friends to see this play about Alexander who had such a bad day last year when I was only four-and-a-half. Now, his Daddy is moving, and he doesn’t want to leave all his friends, so he tries to not move, only he’s just a little kid like me. So there’s not much he can do. He goes to neighbors to try to stay, but one neighbor likes dogs better than boys and another likes girls better than boys and another likes cleaning better than boys (I think I like boys better than dogs and I know I like boys better than cleaning although I can count higher than any of the boys in Ms. Janelle’s class at my school), and Alexander doesn’t want to miss his Mommy and Daddy or his mean brothers who tease him about the time he stepped in doggy poop so he has to move anyway. I don’t know what the big deal about moving is. I wouldn’t mind moving, but my Mommy gets real sad when I tell her I think our house is messy. My favorite parts were the sad song that the doggy sang, and the beginning with everyone running around, and the part where the boy actors played the neighbor’s girls, and the song about girls being able to do anything (and when Alexander said he thought his neighbor likes girls better than boys, Daddy whispered to me that he likes girls better than boys, too – I especially liked that part). Anyway, I got a little squirmier than I did last year, but it was really hot, and I was sleepy from helping Daddy take all the tickets, and I think I really like going to the stage with my Mommy and Daddy more than anything else. When Daddy played Claude last week in Mommy’s play, I kept telling him when he got his lines wrong, and he made his eyes do funny things when I did. I like that too. I’ll be in Kindergarten next year, and I can’t wait to see what plays my Daddy and Mommy take me to when I get even older.

Daddy’s Note – once again, director Clint Thornton has put together a crackerjack show with well-choreographed scene changes, and enough energy to fly to the moon. The cast is held over from last year, and I think Julia was the only kid there who got squirmy. And it was just a little.
