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!
