Alexander, Who’s Not Not Not Going to Move
Sunday, April 2, 2016—3:00 pm
Based on the beloved children’s books, Alexander has just received some really bad news. His dad has taken a job in a city a thousand miles away, which means he and his family are going to have to move. Even though his mom says, “Wait, you’ll like it,” Alexander already knows that he’ll hate it. He can’t bear to leave the people and places he loves, so he decides that he won’t move. First, he tries to live with three different neighbors. Then, he tries to build a tent so he can live by himself. He then decides he’ll hide so his parents will never find him. With a little help from his mom and dad and even his bossy older brothers, he begins to understand that home is where your family is and where you are with the people who love you best of all.
