About

An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are the very “bestus” of friends! In this vaudevillian romp, Elephant and Piggie sing their way through a day where anything is possible. They go to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, wear silly hats, learn a new dance, and share ice cream! Their perfect day hits a snag when Gerald accidently breaks Piggie’s new toy and her feelings get hurt. Will their friendship withstand the tragedy of a broken toy? See your favorite moments from the Elephant & Piggie book series come to life in this bouncy and fun musical!
