      Elephant & Piggie's We Are In a Play
    • Saturday, January 21, 2017
    • Elephant Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to. They are best friends. Our favorite characters from Mo Willems' beloved Elephant and Piggie series take the stage for this vaudevillian romp of a musical. Pachyderm and swine join forces to face questions like: 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? With the help of nutty backup singers, The Squirelles, this musical is an animal party that you won't want to miss!
