Photo Flash: First Look at MERCY WATSON TO THE RESCUE at the Morgan-Wixson
Mercy Watson To The Rescue, a play by Victoria Stewart based on the book by award-winning author Kate DiCamillo, directed by Mr. G, will be presented at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre, 2627 Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica, from July 13 through July 28, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. Tickets are $14/adults, $12/children under 12. Tickets are available online at www.morgan-wixson.org, by phone at 310-828-7519, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. and Mrs. Watson think that 54 Deckawoo Drive will be the perfect home for their family-especially their beloved Mercy. But when Eugenia Lincoln gets wind that her new neighbor is a P-I-G (or porcine wonder, depending on your point of view), Eugenia stirs up trouble of the most hilarious sort. Mercy Watson to the Rescue has comic mayhem, inadvertent heroism, and, of course, hot buttered toast. Recommended for preschool ages and up. The show is especially delightful for any child's first experience seeing live theatre. Mercy Watson is fun for the whole family. Read the book! See the show!
