The play will be approximately one hour in length with no intermission; however, there will be a break room available for those who may need to leave the performance.

Lobby doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and theater doors will open approximately 6:30 p.m.

Play Synopsis:

This brand new, fun-filled musical from Virginia Repertory Theatre is based on the concepts in Carol McCloud’s award-winning children’s books, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?, Growing Up with a Bucket Full of Happiness, and Ann Marie G. Halstead’s book Bucket Filling Fairy. The books and play use the concept of a “bucket” to show children how to express kindness, appreciation and love to be “bucket-fillers.” The play focuses on the benefits of positive, thoughtful behavior. Have you Filled a Bucket Today? The Musical relays the joys of friendship and compassion for both the receiver and the giver. Help teach students to be bucket-fillers rather than bucket-dippers with this musical performance designed to promote healthy relationships, self-esteem, and bring character education to front-and-center stage.

Parent and caregiver resources can be found on our website (sandlercenterfoundation.org):

  • Social Narrative: A picture story that can be read and shown prior to arriving at the show to help ease any anxiety about attending a play or being in a new environment.
  • Play Study Guide: Includes synopsis of the play along with other activities and points of discussion.
