When Elephant Gerald and his perky, smiley friend Piggie receive an invitation to the Squirelles party, they find themselves in a predicament. Is it a fancy party? A pool party? A costume party? A fancy pool costume party!? Whatever will our beloved characters do? Author and playwright Mo Willems answers these questions – and more – with his new Elephant & Piggie’s We Are in a Play! Based on his own award-winning series of cartoon books for early readers, this musical is part vaudeville, part absurd, and entirely hilarious. As these two best-bestus beasties don their finest finery, trendiest trunks, and most marvelous masks, they find themselves singing and dancing their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense. You will find yourself pulled into the action as our heroes, Elephant and Piggie, can finally say, “We Are in a Play!!!!!!”
