Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show

Sat 24 & Sun 25 August 2019 | 1.30pm Sat, 11.00am & 2.00pm Sun

Based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show, 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 colours! 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, features a menagerie of 12 loveable puppets, tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but ultimately realizing that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.

The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself, combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, makes Elmer a great show for children of
all ages.

For Ages 1+
