Suitable for 3-7 year olds and their grown-ups Elmer was different. Elmer was patchwork. He was yellow and orange and red and pink and purple and blue and green and black and white. But, he was not elephant coloured. One night Elmer couldn't sleep for thinking, and the think that he was thinking was that he was tired of being different. So, off he set in search of the elephant-coloured berry bush. And this is where our story begins... Elmer is an adorable patchwork elephant who loves to play with his friends in the jungle. But Elmer is different - he is wonderfully multicoloured and this makes him a very special elephant indeed. The Birmingham Stage Company invites you to enjoy a host of adventures with Elmer and his friends, with silly songs, marvellous magic and multicoloured music!Company Birmingham Stage Company.
