About Mr Popper's Penguins

Direct from a New York City season!

Mr & Mrs Popper and their amazing family of performing penguins make their West End debut at the Criterion this Christmas.

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, out of which waddles a penguin! With songs, puppets and a family of performing penguins, this delightful musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey) is brought to you by the producers of The Tiger Who Came to Tea and We’re  Going on a Bear Hunt.
