Show Description

MainStreet is happy to be producing the California premiere of this hilarious introduction to theatre for young audiences. Adapted by writer Mo Willems from his popular series of children's books, this vaudevillian romp is a rollicking adventure! Our 9 show week includes morning weekday performances as well as weekend matinees for the public. We are looking for a diverse group of actor/singers who move well. The show's composer is also our Musical Director.

An Elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best friends. Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship. Piggie is not worried at all. She's happy and excited because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by The Squirrelles -- three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. This sweet and funny show follows Gerald and Piggie on a day when anything can happen - and is filled with great songs (played by a live band) and some fun audience participation.

AEA Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
