‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ on Stage, March 7-8

The College of Southern Maryland Children’s Theatre presents a play based on the children’s book “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” The play will open at 7 p.m. on March 7 with additional performances at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on March 8. All performances will take place in the Fine Arts Center, 8730 Mitchell Road, La Plata.

The rest of the ensemble cast includes Charlie Wately of Charlotte Hall, Emmeline Jones of Mechanicsville, Morgan Kline of Port Tobacco and Matt Jameson, Phil Holland, Dawn Bush, Angeline Bush, Xavier Prince and Jamie Greene, all of Waldorf.

Alexander’s struggles with life’s daily dramas will entertain and 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 to us all.
