Gerald the Elephant is cautious and Piggie is…well, NOT. They are the best of friends. Which means they have LOTS of fun together. But sometimes they face tough questions. What do you wear to a fancy party? Should you share your ice cream? Can two friends play with just one toy? Get ready for a hilarious musical experience as two of Mo Willems’ most delightfully amusing characters come to life on stage in their Very First Play. Backed by nutty backup singers, The Squirrelles, Gerald and Piggie will have your family doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long!


Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
