Circa ’21’s ‘Elephant & Piggie’ Kids’ Show Opening This Week In Rock Island
Are you and your children big fans of Elephant & Piggie?
Then Rock Island‘s Circa ’21 has got the show for you, running June 11-July 2.
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. Which means they have LOTS of fun together. 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 and Piggie is…well, NOT. 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, get ready for a hilarious musical experience as two of Mo Willems’ most delightfully amusing characters come to life on stage in their Very First Play!
All performances of this children’s musical are show-only and with performances at either at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. depending on the day. Performances take place on Friday, Saturday and Sundays and all tickets are $9.50 per person.
