ELEPHANT & PIGGIE'S "WE ARE IN A PLAY!"
Based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems
Published by Hyperion Books for Children
Script and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma
SLAC’s tradition of bringing professional theatre to Utah families continues with Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”, based on the best-selling children’s book series by Mo Willems. An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, "bestus" ("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!
