It’s a ‘Very Bad Day’ at Sutter Street Theatre

By From page A8 | October 18, 2017

Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. To be quite honest, it’s a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But then, everybody has bad days, sometimes.

In this delightful adaptation of her popular book, 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, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert and his best friend decides he’s not his best friend anymore. And if that’s not bad enough, Alexander’s brothers don’t have any cavities but — he does. And just when it can’t get any worse, there are lima beans for supper and — yuck! — kissing on TV. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia.

Alexander’s struggles with life’s daily dramas will not only entertain but 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 happen — even in Australia.

Sutter Street Theatre’s production is directed by Alyson Gilbert with musical direction and choreography by Connie Mockenhaupt.

“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” runs through Nov. 26 at Sutter Street Theatre, 7171 Sutter St. in Folsom. Showtimes are 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $17 general, $15 seniors and students with ID card and $13 children 12 and younger. For online reservations go to  SutterStreetTheatre.com or call the box office at (916) 353-1001.
