ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Near a majestic mountain in a vast jungle with many mango trees, it has not rained for weeks and weeks. The village well and pond are dry. Monkey and his friends look everywhere for water, but they have no luck. And then Monkey remembers a story his mama used to tell him, a story about how peacocks can make it rain by dancing. Join Monkey on his journey and together, we can discover if this magical story is true. Filled with traditional Indian music and dancing, this charming retelling of an Indian myth promises to engage the senses and inspire the imagination.
Written by Madhuri Shekar and based on the New York Times bestselling children's book “A Bucket of Blessings” by Kabir Sehgal and Surishtha Sehgal. For more information, visit www.abucketofblessings.com
