Elephant & Piggie's We're In A Play

  • Kennedy Center 2700 F St NW Washington, DC (map)

Elephant Gerald is an elephant: lumbering, formally attired, prone to melancholy. Piggie is (what else!) a piggie: perky, smiley, and 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! 
In Elephant & Piggie's We Are in a Play!, a 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 backup 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--and back after a sold-out run in the Family Theater in 2013. You'll be doing the "Flippy Floppy Floory" dance all night long!

Most enjoyed by age 3 and up.
