Charleston Stage presents Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Nothing goes right for Alexander in this charming musical for young people, adapted from Judith Viorst’s acclaimed children’s story. There’s no prize in his breakfast cereal, no dessert in his lunchbox, lima beans for dinner and kissing on TV. When he loses his best friend on the same day it’s obviously a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day.

Charleston Stage presents Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein

IT’S ALIVE! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic comedy movie masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor (that’s Eye-gor), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and in spite of his incredibly self-involved madcap fiancé Elizabeth, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster—but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.
