Back by popular demand, the Long Island Children’s Museum will present Elephant & Piggie’s: “We Are in a Play!”

Children ages 2 and up, along with their caretakers, will enjoy this musical adventure, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning children’s books, with lyrics by Deborah Wicks La Puma.

Willems’ classic characters Elephant and Piggie storm the stage in a rollicking musical romp filled with plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense perfect for young audiences.

Carefully cautious Gerald and spirited playful Piggie share a day where anything is possible in an imaginative exploration of the meaning of friendship.

The comedic duo addresses such important questions as: 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?

Together with nutty back-up singers called the Squirrelles, the duo even gets the audience involved in the action.

Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” is a perfect way to introduce young people to theatre. The show is produced with permission of Music Theater International.

Showtimes are Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.; Thursday, Aug. 23 and Friday, Aug. 24 at 2 p.m.; and Saturday, Aug. 25 at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
