New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival

WheatonArts hosts the New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s Stages Festival on March 23 at 2 p.m. with a special production of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”, presented by Surflight Theatre. FREE and open to the public, this show is appropriate for children in kindergarten through sixth grade.

In this delightful adaptation of Judith Viorst’s popular book, Alexander's rather trying life is set to music and brings to the stage one of America's most spirited characters. 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 everybody has bad days sometimes.

Admission is FREE, part of the WheatonArts “Family Days! Presented by PNC Arts Alive!” program. To register for your free seats to the show, click here: https://www.tfaforms.com/4716455
