Wheelock Family Theatre's Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!", Sock Skating, and More!

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! In Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play! "Gerald and Piggie take to the stage in a rollicking adventure that is perfect for young audiences.

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.

Filled with beloved characters and lively songs, Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" is a perfect way to introduce young people to theatre. Featuring five actors and a small band, making this a perfect educational theater opportunity.

All shows are inclusive and descriptive language is used throughout the performance. ASL interpreted performances will take place on Saturday December 22, 2018 at 12:30pm and Sunday December 23, 2018 at 12:30pm and 3:00pm.

If you or anyone in your party requests Accessible seating, please select the tickets labeled “Accessible” instead. We are able to provide reasonable accommodations for you to enjoy the show.
