A delightful and charming musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book, Mr Popper’s Penguins will warm the hearts of the whole family in the festive season.

Telling the story of Mr Popper, a painter and decorator by day, Mr Popper’s Penguins sees the man dream of having adventures in the Antarctic.

So imagine his amazement when one day, a packing crate arrives on his doorstep – out of which waddles a penguin!

With songs, puppets and a family of performing penguins, and music and lyrics by Luke Bateman and Richy Hughes, Mr Popper’s Penguins is one show you’ll want to waddle your way to this winter.
