Mr. Popper's Penguins

Based on the book by Richard & Florence Atwater

Painter and decorate by day, Mr. Popper spends his time dreaming of Antarctic adventures. He is astounded when one day a packing crate arrive on his doorstep and a penguin waddles out! With original songs and performing penguin puppets, this delightful 60-minute, action-packed musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwaters's award-winning book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey) is the perfect family treat for ages 4 - 104!

Special Pre-Show Fun!
Come early and join our special guests from the Mysic Aquarium for educational fun with live African penguins before the show. Pre-show event is free but participation is limited.
