"I went to sleep with gum in my mouth, and now there's gum in my hair, and when I got out of bed this morning, I tripped on the skateboard, and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running, and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day." This wonderfully fun musical teaches children of all ages to share their feelings and reminds us all that bad days can happen to anyone – even in Australia!

Recommended for Kindergarten and up.
Children under the age of 3 (including sleeping babies) are not allowed in the theater.
