Friends are amazing! Enjoy this musical adventure, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems' beloved, and award-winning children's books about Elephant Gerald and Piggie. Celebrate the end of summer with Willems’ classic characters Elephant and Piggie as they storm the stage in a rollicking musical romp filled with plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense perfect for young audiences. Carefully cautious Gerald and spirited playful Piggie share a day where anything is possible in an imaginative exploration of the meaning of friendship. The comedic duo addresses such important questions as, 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? Together with nutty back-up singers The Squirrelles, our duo even gets the audience involved in the action. Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" is a perfect way to introduce young people to theater.

This production is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI).  Script and lyrics are by Mo Willems and music by Deborah Wicks La Puma.

Fee: $9 with museum admission ($7 Members), $12 Theater only
