How the Elephant Got His Trunk

by Cary Nothnagel

About the Play

Comedy. 25-35 minutes. 7-18 females, 2-13 males (9-20 performers possible). Suitable for elementary school and older. 

How the Elephant Got His Trunk was first produced at the Performing Arts Camp sponsored by the City of Richmond (Virginia) Recreation, Parks and Community Facilities.


When Elton's questions become too much for his family and neighbors, the young elephant sets out on a journey to find his own answers. But it's said that curiosity killed the cat, and it may not be too healthy for elephants either. Will Elton's insatiable inquisitiveness make him wiser, or will it make him dinner?
