Alexander's day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. Though he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother, and sister all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
Through 2/3-2/5 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day will be playing at the Virginia Theatre. All shows start at 7pm and all tickets are $4. Hope to see you there!

Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum, 600 S. Gregory St., Urbana, IL

Hand-held fans are a very important accompaniment to many dances, and they often tell stories, celebrate traditions, express religious beliefs, and pass on histories. During this presentation by "fan fancier" Robin Goettel, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the geography and cultural use of fans, as we explore ethnic dances incorporating fans in their tradition. Beautiful dance videos will be shown, including Flamenco, Balinese, Korean, Eskimo, and many others. After the presentation, the audience can view fans from Ms. Goettel's collection.
