The Union County Community Arts Council will present the Wingate University Theater’s production of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” Feb. 10 and 11 at Wingate University. The show is open to the public.
The book, written by Judith Viorst, tells the story of Alexander, a six-year old boy who wakes up with gum in his hair, trips on a skateboard and then accidentally dried his wet face on his sweater rather than his towel. Alexander is headed for a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. His day gets worse as his teacher doesn’t like his drawing of an invisible castle, his lunchbox doesn’t have any dessert and he learns that he has a cavity in his tooth. It’s enough to make Alexander wish he could move to Australia.
“This program is another way the arts council provides cultural arts opportunities for residents of Union County,” Arts Council executive director Barbara Faulk said. “We begin exposing children at a very early age to the arts so that they may develop a lifetime of arts appreciation.”
The shows begin at 10 each day and are open to the public. Tickets are $5.00 for children and adults. Call (704) 283-2784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservation information.
