Elephant & Piggie’s We are in a Play! (school shows)

February 14 - April 28

Kleberg Stage


When Gerald and Piggie get together, anything is possible. They might wear silly hats, get invited to a fancy pool costume party, or learn a crazy new dance. Based on the wildly popular, beloved book series, this lively musical features Gerald and Piggie and the delightful back-up singers, the Squirrelles, who together discover the fun of being in a play and the joy of friendship. Bring your “bestus” friend and share the laughter.

COST: $8.00 per child. Title 1 Discounts available based on a sliding scale. 1 adult for every ten children is free. Each additional adult is $16.


After you make your reservation, you will receive a confirmation notice within three days. Payment in full is due one month before your visit. If find you need an extension on your payment due date, please call 512-476-0594 x236 and we will help set a new payment due date.
For every ten student tickets purchased, you will receive 1 free adult ticket. Both teachers and parents should be included in the number of adult tickets reserved. Parents cannot purchase individual tickets with the theatre, as all reservations must be done through the school.
Reservation numbers may be increased at anytime, if space allows. However, any decreases to your reservation must be made one month prior to visit. After this time all reserved seats must be paid for regardless of day-of attendance.
Cancellations must be given in writing at least 4 weeks prior to reservation. No refund for payment will be given if inadequate notice is given.
ZACH Theatre is located right next to Zilker park and has a small park and baseball field on site. Please feel free to utilize these areas for a picnic lunch or recreation area.
Remember to reserve your buses early.
