Mr Poppers Penguins, the smash hit theatre show, fresh from its West End and Off Broadway run, has now opened with a glittering press evening Waterside in Sale. Phenomenal puppetry and magical musical numbers wowed the full-house audience on Thursday 28 November as the show begins its month long run until 31 December.
Puppets, penguins, packing crates and pure magic abound in this family-friendly production produced by acclaimed children’s theatre company Pins & Needles – the same team behind Waterside’s previous two sell-out Christmas shows, The Bear and Father Christmas.
With original songs and performing penguin puppets to delight audiences of all ages, this heart-warming and hilarious musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carey as Mr Popper) is the perfect family treat. Limited tickets are still available for most performances.
Attended by Coronation Street and Strictly Come Dancing star, Catherine Tyldesley and her four-year old son, who were both completely captivated by the performance.
“it was hands down one of the best children’s shows I have ever seen, it was absolutely brilliant, the cast were amazing and if you have the chance, go!”
Darren Adams, Manager of Waterside, says:
“We know Christmas is upon us when Pins and Needles arrive and the theatre is alive and buzzing with the noise and excitement of hundreds of school-children and families. This internationally acclaimed show is really charming and sure to delight audiences of all ages. What’s not to love about singing and dancing penguins!”
Mr Popper’s Penguins is now open at Waterside and runs until 31 December.
The show is recommended for children aged between 3 and 11.
Children (and adults too!) are invited to come in their PJs and bring a favourite bedtime teddy to the 6pm Slumber Shows to make their theatre experience a real bedtime treat!
