What's Included

Act Too Players would like to announce a wonderful opportunity for children ages 8 to 13 interested in the performing arts. Enroll your child today in the Home School exclusive class which will be performing ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY! ALEXANDER will be fun for both beginners and kids with stage experience, and the final product will be performed live at Act Too’s Open House on Sunday, November 15th. 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 delightful adaptation of her popular book, Judith Viorst sets Alexander's rather trying life to music and brings to the stage one of America's feistiest characters. 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 —yuck!—kissing on TV. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. 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 bad days happen—even in Australia.

About This Organizer

The Act Too Players is committed to providing high-quality theatre classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore theatre with qualified, nurturing teachers.


We believe that theatre education encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being. Along with improving coordination skills and theatre education encourages self-expression, concentration, communication skills and enhances imagination.


The highest educational standards are expected from all Act Too Players faculty members. They are lifelong learners who continue to educate themselves through certification programs, teacher-training schools, conferences, and other learning opportunities.


Our program is grounded in the belief that theatre skills are worthwhile, valuable life skills. For children and teens, these classes, camps, and workshops open doors to imagination and self-confidence while holding fast to the discipline and work ethic that is crucial for any craft. Act Too Players has produced over 100 productions and strives to provide students the opportunity to learn and grow not only as a performer but also as an individual.​
