Mr Poppers Penguins

Director: Emma Earle; Written by: Richard Atwater, Florence Atwater; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Lucy Grattan, Scott Jones, Toby Manley, Russell Morton, Roxanne Palmer; Music and lyrics: Luke Bateman, Richy Hughes

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.
