Mr. Popper’s Penguins
Based on the book by Richard and Florence Atwater
In the town of Stillwater live the pleasant and practical Mr. and Mrs. Popper. Sometimes Mr. Popper dreams of going on adventures. When he writes to his idol Admiral Drake—explorer, circumnavigator of the globe, and visitor to the South Pole—Mr. Popper receives a surprise package. It’s a bunch of boisterous penguins! This new musical, based on the classic Newbery Honor Book from 1939, teaches that unexpected strains and creative solutions can make a family, and that dreams can have surprising endings.
