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.
