2016-2017 Season

Elephant & Piggie's We Are in a Play! (Ages 3+)
KCTYA on Tour: Fall 2016 – Spring 2017
A Kennedy Center commission and production

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!

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 – you'll be doing the "Flippy Floppy Floory" dance all night long!

Originally produced in the 2013-2014 season.
