Huntsville Public Library's Youth Services Department is having a "Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day" on Saturday, September 24, 2005, at 10:30 a.m. This event is open to families and kids of all shapes and sizes. Find out how much fun a terrible day can be as Independent Musical Productions present "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," an adaptation of the popular children's book by Judith Viorst. IMP will hold "Alexander's Mini Adventure" which will include the cast performing excerpts from the show, theatre games and door prize drawings for free tickets to the production which will be presented the following weekend. There will be a reading of the original book and refreshments for all. IMP's first show of the 2005-06 season will be the area premier of "Alexander," directed by Lorie Gill Hubscher and assisted by Vivienne Atkins. This production brings to the stage one of America's feistiest characters. Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair, his mother forgets to pack him dessert, his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore... and so on. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. 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—even in Australia. Shows are September 29-October 1 with special daytime school performances. Join us in Youth Services for one of the best "Bad" days you've ever had.
All 12 branches of HMCPL will be closed on Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.
