“Snowlion Repertory Company presents this riotous circus of a dystopia,  with Al D’Andrea directing a stellar ensemble cast in a disorienting, absurdist production that’s sometimes puckish, sometimes horrifying...liberatingly playful and devastatingly, sometimes chillingly taut...a strange, fascinating show.”
Portland Phoenix

It truly is a beautiful thing when I walk into a theater with absolutely no clue as to what I will witness and leave smiling, with my head swimming from the experience...a wonderful journey ensues, delivering the audience safely at the destination of self questioning...the end will enlighten all.”
The Portland Daily Sun

“A musical with surreal imagery and satirical bite...Snowlion Repertory succeeds in delivering a multilayered production that simultaneously entertains and calls the public to action.”
The Portland Press Herald


TITLE for website

book, music, lyrics by Darryl Curry

directed by Al D’Andrea

musical direction by Jim Colby

choreography by Betsy Dunphy

A roving band of vaudevillian miscreants stages a faux "minstrel show," launching the audience of The Elephant Piece on a journey into musical mayhem and absurdist spectacle that ultimately touches the heart and gives hope that our species might just survive its own destructive nature.  This musical tale is a funny, biting satire full of elephant lore, song-and-dance flights of fancy, and surreal imagery that blends to make an expressionistic carnival more relevant than ever as the majestic elephant once again faces unrelenting devastation by poachers
