If you’re looking for a fun Christmas show to take the kids to then how about the Smash-Hit Broadway and West End production of Mr Popper’s Penguins
I’ve got my tickets ready and can’t wait to head over to the Waterside in Sale for a sneak preview this week so I’ll let you know how we get on..
The show is on from Wednesday 27th November through to the 31st December so still plenty of time to get yourself booked in..
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 out of which waddles a penguin…
With original songs and performing penguin puppets to charm audiences of all ages, this
delightful and action-packed musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s book
(also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carey as Mr Popper) is the perfect family treat to warm hearts and souls on a cold winter’s day.
Mr Popper’s Penguins opens to the public on Wednesday 27th November and runs until 31 December. Schools performances are also available – for a full breakdown see watersidearts.org/popperspenguins
The show is recommended for children aged between 3 and 11.
Cookies and milk packs are also available to pre-order along with your tickets for just an extra £2.50 each for all shows.
Children (and adults too!) are invited to come in their PJs and bring a favourite bedtime teddy to the 6pm Slumber Shows to make their theatre experience a real bedtime treat!
