Ride the range with Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa, meet Mercy, an exuberant pig who loves to drive, in Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride. And finally, our young audience will experience a young girl’s self-discovery in The Dot.. All of these stories come to life on the stage, while students will have a great time and learn some small life lessons, too.
