A Sick Day for Morris McGeeTrain theater
Based on the book, A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead
Morris is a little man who lives in a wooden toolbox.
Every morning, Morris goes to the zoo where he works and spends the day with his good friends - the flexible elephant, the agile turtle, the runny-nosed rhinoceros, the shy penguin and the owl that is afraid of the dark.
When Morris is at work, the zoo comes to life. Morris bathes and hugs the animals, plays and laughs with them, and sings them lullabies.
But one day when Morris doesn't show up at work, the worried animals decide to do something for him.
A heartwarming story about a unique friendship in an enchanted world.
