Penguins

March 30, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

CAHOOTS NI (NORTHERN IRELAND)

GRADES PREK-3

Just like the other bonded animals at New York’s Central Park Zoo, Roy and Stilo, two male penguins walk, play, swim, and dance together. When the duo try to hatch a rock, the zookeeper gives them an egg instead, and they find themselves on an adventure, raising a chick for real!

Penguins is a unique and engaging show about love, identity, and the ever-evolving meaning of family. Inspired by the true story reported by the New York Times that touched hearts world-wide, this new non-verbal theatre and dance production comes to life with delightful music and movement.
