If you have kids, chances are you’ve read Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie books. Northwest Children’s Theater (NWCT) brings the world of Elephant & Piggie to life in an upbeat musical that weaves through eight of his most popular books including Elephants Cannot Dance, I Love My New Toy, and Should I Share My Ice Cream? The show is an encore of NWCT’s 2023 production which enjoyed sold-out houses and rave reviews.

“The show was fantastic! Perfect amount of audience interaction, wonderful talent, and the kids loved seeing their favorite book characters on stage!”
