About the event

Elmer the patchwork elephant is tired of being different. But when he hides his “true colours” he discovers, with help from his friends, that he’s happiest just being himself. Join Elmer on a vibrant, musical safari through the jungle to celebrate everything that makes us unique.

Adapted from the well-loved children’s book, ‘Elmer’ by David McKee published by Andersen Press, Riverside Performing Arts have created a show to delight younger audiences. Running time 45 minutes.

Suitable for ages 3+

Please note that children need to be accompanied for this event and that both adults and children need tickets.
