NW Children's Theater Elephant & Piggie artwork

Join Northwest Children's Theater at the zoo for a special performance!

Meet “bestus friends” Gerald the Elephant and Piggie the Pig. Together, they tackle friendship’s big questions: What happens when two friends want to play with ONE toy? What DO you wear to a fancy party? And will ANYONE say “Banana?”
