Elmer the Patchwork Elephant celebrates his 30th birthday and a brand-new live stage adaptation based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee will be stopping at The Lowry February 19 to 21.

It tells the tale of an elephant that stands out—both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour—but ultimately realising his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.

It is brought to life by Selladoor Family, producers behind James And The Giant Peach, Seussical, The Owl And The Pussycat, Guess How Much I Love You and Madagascar the Musical, and MEI Theatrical, producers of family entertainment.
