Alligator Pie

Alligator pie, alligator pie  
If I don’t get some, I think I’m gonna die. 
Give away the green grass, give away the sky
But don’t give away my alligator pie! 

This beloved Soulpepper favourite returns just in time for the holidays! Alligator Pie brings the celebrated children’s poems of Dennis Lee to vibrant theatrical life. Full of invention and imagination, it's a show that is joyous, musical, and fun for all members of the family. Watch the cast, made up of the 2024 Soulpepper Academy ensemble, as they create a world out of everyday objects that captures the child-like whimsy of each poem. 

What kind of message is this play sending to children? They'll grow up expecting to have fun at the theatre!

- Globe and Mail   

An explosion of theatrical joy... This isn’t a kid’s show. It’s a people show. All human beings are invited and ought to attend as soon as possible.
