Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”

In Mo Willems’ beloved books, Elephant Gerald and Piggie are best friends. In We Are in a Play!, a brand-new vaudevillian romp of a musical, Gerald and Piggie sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense. Asking the fundamental questions of childhood—What do you wear to a fancy pool costume party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy?—while backed by nutty singers The Squirrelles. The duo even gets the audience involved in the action. The whole family will be doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all day and night!

Additional Information: 60 minutes; geared for ages 4+
