Mr. Popper’s Penguins
Presented by Casa Mañana Theatre from Ft. Worth, TX
Based on the book by Richard and Florence Atwater
Adapted for the stage by Pins and Needles Productions from the United Kingdom
Music by Luke Bateman
Lyrics by Richy Hughes
Produced by Casa Mañana by arrangement with Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and TC Beech
In the small town of Stillwater, painter and decorator Mr. Popper is a pleasant, practical, predictable person who periodically pines for polar adventures. But when a peculiar package on the Poppers’ porch produces a penguin, chaos waddles into their lives! Soon, the Poppers open their home and hearts to not one, not two, but a bunch of boisterous black-and-white birds!
With catchy songs and penguin puppets aplenty, this fresh and funny musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book—also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey—will leave you chirping with cheer!
Most enjoyed by age 3 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
