Southern Rep Theatre presents
ELEPHANTS AND PIGGIE’S “WE ARE AT PLAY”
Book and Lyrics by Mo Willems; Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma
Directed by Becca Chapman
THEATRE FOR THE YOUNGEST AUDIENCES AND BEYOND!
In this vaudevillian romp, Elephant and Piggie sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense. Get ready for a musical experience, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books, that will leave audiences doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long!
An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, “bestus” (a word Gerald and Piggie made up that means “very best”) friends, but Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship. Piggie is not worried at all. She’s even happier and more excited than usual. That’s because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. And so begins a day when anything is possible.
Filled with beloved characters and lively songs, it’s a perfect way to introduce young people to theatre!
