Painter and decorator by day, Mr Popper spends his time dreaming of Antarctic expeditions and reading about penguins.
He is astounded when one day a packing crate arrives on his doorstep, out of which waddles a penguin!
With songs, puppets and a great story to tell, this delightful musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book premiered in 2015 at the Theatre Royal Brighton, before touring the UK. Mr Popper’s Penguins played at New York’s New Victory Theatre in 2016 and the Seattle Children’s Theatre and Casa Manana, Texas, in 2017, before touring the US in 2018. The show was most recently performed in Manchester in 2019.
