Elephant & Piggie's We Are in a Play
April 30, 2017
In Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books, Elephant Gerald and Piggie are best friends! And in 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? And 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. A Kennedy Center commission based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems. This Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences production is part of the Methodist Richardson Family Theatre Series.
We hope to inspire participation in Richardson’s wide variety of events and activities by providing you with comprehensive information about what to do and where to go for unique cultural experiences. Our goal is to make art an important part of every day, and we hope this site will help you as you seek to explore art exhibit, enjoy a performance or create a work of art of your own.
