Elephant and Piggie: We Are in a Play!

Scenic Design

Gerald the Elephant is cautious and Piggie is…well, NOT. They are the best of friends. Which means they have LOTS of fun together. But sometimes they face tough questions. What do you wear to a fancy party? Should you share your ice cream? Can two friends play with just one toy? A hilarious musical experience with the two Mo Willems’ most delightfully amusing characters coming to life on stage in their Very First Play.  Scenic design evokes the illustration style of Mo Willems in a playground setting with surprise partitions and fly-in elements.

Book and Lyrics by Mo Willems, Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma,
