Mr. Popper's Penguin Tickets

Based on the book by Richard & Florence Atwater.  Adapted for the stage by Pins & Needles Productions.  Music by Luke Bateman. Lyrics by Richy Hughes.

Direct from a smash hit New York and London West End season.

Painter and decorator by day, Mr Popper spends his time dreaming of Antarctic adventures. He is astounded when one day a packing crate arrives on his doorstep and a penguin waddles out!

With original songs and performing penguin puppets, this delightful, action packed musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater's popular book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey) is the perfect family treat!

Produced by Casa Manana by arrangement with Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and TC Beech.
