This exciting show was inspired by the popular "How Full is Your Bucket?" literature. We all are born with "invisible buckets". These buckets represent our mental and emotional health. We all need our own buckets filled with caring and love and we need to help fill the buckets of others. Through magic, students will learn how the power of affirming words and actions to will enrich themselves, their families and communities. Fill a bucket today!
