Mr Popper is a painter and decorator by day, but spends his time daydreaming about Antarctic adventures. So imagine his surprise when a packing crate arrives on his doorstep, and out waddles a penguin!

Cue lots of music, mayhem and fun, as Mr and Mrs Popper reveal their performing penguins in a fast-paced puppet musical for the whole family.

'Mr Popper's Penguins' is based on Richard and Florence Atwater's popular children's book, which was later made into a movie starring Jim Carrey.
