Elephant and Piggie’s We Are In A Play
January 31, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
Elephant Gerald is an elephant: lumbering, formally attired, prone to melancholy. Piggie is (what else?) a piggie: perky, smiley, full of fun. Total opposites? No way! In Mo Willems’s beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books, Elephant Gerald and Piggie are best friends! “We Are in a Play!,” a brand-new vaudevillian romp of a musical. Elephant Gerald and Piggie sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense–facing fundamental questions like, “What do you wear to a fancy pool costume party? Should you share your ice cream? How can two friends play with one toy?” Backed by nutty back-up singers The Squirrelles, our duo even gets the audience involved in the action. So get ready for a musical experience ripped from the pages of your favorite books. You’ll be doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long!
