White's classic barnyard characters are here: Wilbur, the radiant young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, the sweet energetic girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous wise-cracking rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; and most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be a good writer and a true friend.

Elephant & Piggie's "We are in a Play!"

Grades Pre-k - 3

Based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems

Book and lyrics by Mo Willems

Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma 

The perfect year-end treat! A giggle-filled vaudevillian romp based on Mo Willem's beloved, award-winning, and best-selling children's books.

Gerald is an elephant: lumbering, formally attired, prone to melancholy. Piggie is (what else!) a piggie: perky, smiley, and full of fun! Total opposites? No way! They are best friends!

In Elephant & Piggie's We Are in a Play! Elephant and Piggie sing and dance their way through questions like: what do you wear to a fancy pool costume party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Backed by nutty backup singers, The Squirrelles, our duo even gets the audience involved in the action. Your students will be doing the "Flippy Floopy Floory" dance all summer long!

Dates: May 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 31
