Raising a tween and teen is full of surprises. Just when I think they’ve outgrown their formerly favorite books, they panic when I suggest donating them. I’m glad they’re not growing as fast as it feels some days.
Mo Willems’s Elephant & Piggie books (affiliate link) were a favorite in our family–kids and adults. The books are great for beginning readers and wildly entertaining for my husband and me. I didn’t mind reading the same one over and over with my kids because I enjoyed the duo’s antics.
If your family loves this adorable pair of friends, you’ll want to see Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are In A Play!” the new musical at Adventure Theatre! Yes, you read that right. A musical! We’d expect no less from Elephant and Piggie.
Here’s the official description of the show:
The award-winning, best-selling children’s books jumps from page to stage as a musical experience you won’t forget! Gerald and Piggie are “bestus” friends, with Gerald taking care of all the worrying and Piggie living her best life. Piggie’s even happier and more excited than usual. They’re going to a party hosted by the Squirrelles! And so begins a day when anything is possible.
Doesn’t that sound fun? Both my tween and teen are excited to see the show.

If you’ve never taken your kids to live theatre, I highly recommend Adventure Theatre. Their shows are designed for children (and adults). When my kids were younger, they hung on to every word and song. You’ll have a chance to meet the cast after the performance, which my kids loved.
You can even make a day out of your trip to Glenn Echo Park. There’s a fun playground, a carousel, and more.
