Millbrook Playhouse Presents Elephant & Piggie's WE ARE IN A PLAY!

Millbrook Playhouse will present their first live musical indoors in more than a year; Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" based on author Mo Willems' best-selling, beloved, and award-winning children's books. This charming entertainment is perfect for the whole family. Running weekends from June 19 through June 22.

In this delightful storybook adaptation, an elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, "bestus" friends. But sometimes, they face tough questions. What do you wear to a fancy party? Should you share your ice cream? Can two friends play with just one toy? Gerald the Elephant is cautious, but Piggie is, well ... not. In fact, she's even happier and more excited than usual because she and Gerald have been invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles - three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. And so begins a day in which anything is possible. Filled with beloved Mo Willems' characters and lively songs, Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" delivers a hilarious musical experience as two of children's literature's most delightfully amusing characters come to life on stage in their very first play.
