Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show

ABOUT THE SHOW

Based on the popular children’s book series by David McKee, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter!

Elephants, as everyone knows, are big, have trunks, and are grey. But Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colors! His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd.

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-colored skin and his sense of humor – but ultimately realizing that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.

A favorite of young people since the first book was published in 1989, with over 25 books in the series, the title book has been adapted for the stage by Suzanne Maynard Miller, with songs by Allison Leyton-Brown. The show’s subtle message that it is OK to be different, combined with the vibrant color and cheeky humor of the main character, makes Elmer a great show for kids.

The show had an out-of-town try out in Toronto in 2017, and will arrive in the United Kingdom in 2018.
