Some Days Are Just Like That in “Alexander” at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Jan. 11

By Wendy Humphrey
West Windsor, N.J. – Young audiences will sympathize and sing along as Alexander has his worst day ever! Theatreworks USA and Two Beans Productions presents “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” at Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre  for two shows only on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Alexander’s misfortunes – from getting gum in his hair to tripping on a skateboard to learning that a schoolmate doesn’t want to be his friend anymore – are captured in this hilarious musical adaptation featuring book and lyrics by Judith Viorst, author of the best-selling children’s classic. The younger set will embrace the lesson Alexander learns – that everyone has a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day sometimes…and survives!
