Mr. Popper's Penguins
Book by Robert Kauzlaric
Music & Lyrics by George Howe

Based on the novel by Richard and Florence Atwater

October 26 - December 3, 2017  

Money is tight and times are tough in the town of Stillwater. With no houses to paint till next spring, Mr. Popper is stuck at home daydreaming of Arctic adventures, while Mrs. Popper must scrimp and save just to put beans on the table. But with the unexpected arrival of a spirited penguin named Captain Cook, a new horizon opens before them and before long the Poppers have a snowdrift in the living room and a dozen delightful penguins living in the house. With an ever-increasing bill for canned shrimp, what can the wonderfully imaginative Poppers do but train the penguins and take the show on the road!  

Based on the Newberry Award-winning novel, Mr. Popper's Penguins is a flipper-flapping musical tale that will make you believe in the power of ingenuity and determination.
