Elephant and Piggie's "We Are in a Play!"
When they finally meet, Gerald the worrier is apprehensive that something horrible may happen in the next one hour and end their best friendship, while Piggie sees the immense possibilities of their time together. The differing points of view alone make for an interesting set-up. The play ends with Piggie explaining to Gerald that all plays come to an end, but reassuring him that they will still be together. As the lights go out and come back again, and they emerge from their play about a play, they realize that they can have fun and go on new adventures, even without a script. The production, as you might imagine, is delightful. She was very excited that she even knew the script! She could preempt the dialogues before the actors actually said it and so she felt very connected to what was happening on stage.
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! 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.
