Dakota Stage Ltd. is proud to present “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” a musical comedy, drawn from the children’s book by Judith Viorst.
The show stars DSL veterans Austin Flemmer, Becki Maloney and Andrew Hager in the title role, and newcomers Jackee Rohrich, Derek Harper and Jeffrey Jung, with direction by Amanda Perry.
“Alexander” is for both young and old. 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 adaptation of her book, Viorst sets Alexander’s rather trying life to music and brings to the stage Alexander.
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 — kissing on TV.
It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. Alexander’s struggles with life’s daily dramas will attempt to entertain and educate families 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.
Dakota Stage Ltd. will hold its run of “Alexander” at 412 E .Main Ave. in Bismarck. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays from Dec. 1-11.
