Katie Couric’s Brand New Kid
Presented by the Kennedy Center's Imagination Celebration on Tour. New teachers… new books… new faces! It's the very first day of second grade, and Lazlo S. Gasky is the new kid in school. He's your typical seven-year-old boy, but because he doesn't look or speak quite like the others, the teasing and taunting begin. When Ellie McSnelly realizes how tough Lazlo has it, she risks being ridiculed herself to spend an afternoon with him. After playing soccer, eating strudel, and making new friends, the two teach their classmates a valuable lesson--one that's not in their schoolbooks--about the need to give others a chance. Adapted from Katie Couric's popular children's book, this uplifting new musical proves that being yourself is the best way to be.
Alexander and the Very Bad Horrible Day
Presented by Theatreworks USA, in conjunction with Two Bean Productions.
From the moment he wakes up with gum in his hair, things just do not go Alexander's way. At breakfast, Alexander's brothers Nick and Anthony reach into their cereal boxes and pull out amazing prizes, while all Alexander ends up with is . . . cereal. The situation does not get any better at school, in fact it gets worse. No wonder Alexander wants to move to Australia! In Australia, everything is upside down, so maybe a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day can become a wonderful, terrific, really good day. Study Guide & games Available.

D.W. is jealous when her big brother Arthur loses a tooth and gets a visit from the Tooth Fairy.
