Elephant & Piggie's We Are In a Play!

A Kennedy Center commission based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems
Script and lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma
Directed by Jerry Whiddon
Choreographed by Jessica Hartman

Elephant Gerald is an elephant: lumbering, formally attired, prone to melancholy. Piggie is (what else!) a piggie: perky, smiley, full of fun. Total opposites? No way! In Mo Willems’s 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. So get ready for a musical experience ripped from the pages of your favorite books. You’ll be doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long! This show is a Kennedy Center commission based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems.
