ABOUT THE SHOW
The author of the best-selling Elephant & Piggie books brings you a rollicking celebration of friendship and fun in a colorful musical for children 3 to 8 years old and their families. With their back-up trio the Squirelles, Gerald and Piggie sing, dance, and laugh their way through a day where anything can happen.

How does it feel to share something that’s important to us? What is it like to learn something new and unknown? How can we apologize when we’ve made a mistake? Our youngest audiences will have the opportunity to learn these valuable lessons alongside Gerald Elephant and Piggie. Live theatre gives children the chance to explore feelings of empathy in a safe space, all while having fun. Join us as our Exploring Stages program premieres its first musical to bring students, teachers and families together for story time!

Elephant and Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" is in the IRT Cabaret. This production features "Storytime Seating" where students and adults are invited to sit on the floor together to experience live theatre in an intimate setting designed specifically for our youngest patrons.

Date Range: February 19, 2019 - March 15, 2019
