Timber Lake Playhouse proudly presents Elephant and Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” by Mo Willems with music by Debrorah Wicks LaPuma.
In this vaudevillian romp, Elephant and Piggie sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense
Get ready for a musical experience, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books, that will leave audiences doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long! InElephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”, Gerald and Piggie take to the stage in a rollicking adventure that is perfect for young audiences.
An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, “bestus” (a word Gerald and Piggie made up that means “very best”) friends, but Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship. Piggie is not worried at all. She’s even happier and more excited than usual. That’s because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. And so begins a day when anything is possible.
Filled with beloved characters and lively songs, Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”is a perfect way to introduce young people to theatre.
There will be eight performances of Elephant & Piggie starting Tuesday, May 7 and continuing through Friday, May 10 at 10:00 and 1:00 and a performance on Saturday May 11 at 11:00. Each performance will be approximately 60 minutes. Admission is only $6.00 per person. Call 815 244-2035 to book your group.
