Yes You Can, Cow

Two showstopping talents have created a playful and witty nursery rhyme production! Will Cow jump over the moon?

Yes, you can, Cow! We believe in you!
READY . . . STEADY . . GO . . .

It’s the Nursery Rhyme’s big performance, but Cow is having second thoughts. She’s too scared to jump! What if she crashes? Will everyone laugh?

The curtain’s almost up and the audience are waiting. Can Cow overcome her fear of failure and become the star of the show?

A gorgeous, heart-warming story about believing in yourself and doing your best based on the ever-popular nursery rhyme ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’.
