Based on the classic children's book comes the family musical about the power of one "good deed".

The elephant is the kindest animal in the jungle, rescuing the giraffe, lion, and rhino, but who will return the favor when the elephant needs help? Based on Aesop's fable and created by the creative team behind The Musical Adventures Of Flat StanleyThe Ant And The Elephant is a charming morality tale perfectly suited for young audiences.

A tiny ant finds himself in trouble - stranded in the middle of a river clinging precariously to a blade of grass. One by one the animals of the jungle refuse to help and so begins a cycle of misfortune and misdeeds that is not broken until a kindly elephant arrives providing help to all in need. But the elephant has a different problem: pride. When misfortune befalls the big elephant will anyone remember his good deeds and return the favor? The most unlikely of heroes proves that one good turn definitely deserves another.

From Dumbo to 101 Dalmatians, Bill Peet was one of Walt Disney's greatest storymen, responsible for illustrating, storyboarding and producing many of the greatest animated features of all time. His books have brought storytelling to children for over 40 years, and now The Ant And The Elephant brings Peet's unique version of this Aesop fable to life on stage.

The breathtaking Broadway production required no less than two directors, Harold Prince and Michael Bennett. Follies represents the only time either shared directorial credit.
