Mr. Popper’s Penguins
Written by Jody Davidson
With music by Brett Schrier
based on the novel by Richard and Florence Atwater
This charming tale touches the heart – with lots of laughs along the way! It is hard enough for Mr. Popper, a simple painter, to support himself and his family. The addition of twelve penguins makes it impossible to make both ends meet – until Mr. Popper has a splendid idea. He will turn the talented penguins into a traveling vaudeville act! And that’s exactly what he does. The entire family will delight in the adventures of Mr. Popper and his “performing” feathered friends.
“If you’re between the ages of 5 and 95, it’ll warm your heart with lovable little penguins, enchant you with a great storyline and dazzle you with a jaw-dropping show-biz ‘big number’ pulled off by tap-dancing penguins that you’ll not soon forget!” -Eagle Times
