Why See Mr. Popper's Penguins?

Antarctica Comes To You!

Fun for the whole family! With original songs and performing penguin puppets, the charming musical Mr. Poppers Penguins is the musical adaption of the much loved 1930 children's book written by Richard and Florence Atwater.

Mr. Popper, a humble painter and decorator, dreams of adventures in the Antarctic. Until one morning he receives a cool surprise! A crate arrives and out waddles his very own penguin - courtesy of the great explorer Admiral Drake. One penguin soon expands into a family of penguins and before he knows it Mr. Popper has many extra mouths to feed. On a tight household budget he has only one resolution, to train his penguins to perform and take their show on the road.

This can only end one way... with amusement, shenanigans and determination; come and witness Mr. Popper's dream come true.
