About This Show

Seattle Children’s Theatre (SCT) concludes its 30th anniversary season with the staging of the well-loved Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, with book and lyrics by Judith Viorst and music by Shelly Markham. This musical comedy brings to life the story of Alexander and the misfortunes of his very bad day.

This is not Alexander’s morning–he wakes up with gum in his hair, and things only get worse with mishap after mishap in school, at the dentist’s office, in the shoe store, and at his dad’s office. Alexander wishes he could move to Australia, where he is sure things would be better. That night, as his mom tucks him in, she helps Alexander understand that everyone has bad days, but tomorrow will be a fresh start.
