A Sick Day for Amos McGee
Amos McGee is as kindly and conscientious a zookeeper as you will find. Day after day, he demonstrates the perfect way to bond with each of his friends: running races with the tortoise, spending quiet time with the timid penguin, and always being there with a handkerchief when one is needed by the sniffling elephant. When one day Amos himself feels under the weather and must remain home in his bed, the animals must decide together what they can do to return the favor. Based on the 2011 Caldecott Medal Winner by Philip and Erin Stead, this play by the Virignia Repertory Company sends a special message of kindness and thoughtfulness to others.
