MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS

January 13, 2018 Des Moines Civic Center

DIRECT FROM A SMASH-HIT NEW YORK AND LONDON WEST END SEASON

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 and a penguin waddles out!

With original songs and performing penguin puppets, this delightful, action packed musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey) is the perfect family treat!

You Make The Difference

“The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we’ve ever documented our existence, it’s all through an art form.”
