In the majestic mountains of India, Monkey spends her days playing with her animal friends in a lovely jungle, but she notices that it has become hot and dry and the rain hasn’t fallen in the rainforest for many weeks. Monkey’s mother tells her of an old legend that a dancing peacock can bring the rains. But when Monkey and her friend Baby Elephant try dancing to no avail, she decides she must go on a quest to find the magical Peacock and return water to the jungle. Based on a magnificent myth from India and exploring the rich beauty of Southeastern Asia, A Bucket of Blessings offers our youngest audience members a lovely legend of play and perseverance as an introduction to the theater.

Join Our Post-Performance Q&A Session!
A few minutes after the performance, our actors will conduct a Question & Answer session from the stage. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the scenery, costumes, special effects, and other aspects of the production. The actors may even have a question or two for you about the story.
Meet the Cast & Get an Autograph!
Some performers will be available after the show to say hello, pose in pictures, and sign their autographs for you. You can meet them on the mezzanine level right outside the entrance to our balcony level seats.

A social story is a tool that helps individuals better understand the world around them so they can plan for a positive experience, even if they are going into an place that is unknown to them. Social stories help individuals know what to expect and what to do in unfamiliar situations by walking them through the experience. They are often used by individuals on the autism spectrum, children with sensory needs or those with other special needs. They can be very helpful for very young children anticipating their first theatrical experience. The Rose’s social stories feature photos of all areas of the theater to help children of all abilities with a step-by-step explanation of what it is like to visit The Rose, as well as answering questions they may have.
