Orlando Shakespeare Theater will bring the celebrated children’s Elephant and Piggie books to life with Elephant and Piggie’s “We are in a Play!” on select dates through May 7.
Who are Elephant and Piggie? Only the best of friends! In this toe-tapping musical, best friends Elephant Gerald (Jacob Valleroy) and Piggie (Corynne Wagener) sing and dance their way through pachydermal peril and swiney suspense as they face fundamental questions.
Questions like: what do you wear to a fancy pool party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Backed by nutty backup singers The Squirrelles (Sarah Summerwell, Kimmi Johnson, and Austin Ryan Hunt), the inseparable duo get the audience involved in the fun as well.
Directed by Melissa Mason Braillard, performances are select Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10:15am and noon, Wednesdays at 10:30am, and Saturdays at 2pm. Prior to every performance is an interactive pre-show for the whole family, and autograph sessions follow Saturday performances.
On April 23, celebrate Shakespeare’s 452nd birthday with expert party-goers Elephant and Piggie! Get ready for games, prizes, and a special Birthday Sing-A-Long before the 2pm performance.
Tickets are $9, except for Saturday matinees when they’re $12 for kids and $15 for adults. They can be purchased at orlandoshakes.org or at the box office at John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 E. Rollins St.) in Orlando.
