July 30 – August 7

Book and Lyrics by Mo Willems

Based on the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems

Get ready for a hilarious songfest ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’s beloved, award-winning children’s books that will leave audiences doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long! Elephant Gerald and Piggie are the best of friends. Worrisome and careful Gerald wonders if something could go wrong that would end their friendship. But playful and spirited Piggie is not worried at all, especially when she receives an invitation 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 in an imaginative musical romp that playfully explores the importance and true meaning of friendship.
