Performed by Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, Mr. Popper’s Penguins is an adventure filled 1930s-inspired musical based on the classic book of the same name.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins takes place in the town of Stillwater, at the end of September 1937, Mr. Popper lives a sensible life as a house painter. He often wishes he had seen the world before settling down – particularly the North and South Poles. As a busy summer season of work ends, Mr. Popper heads home to Mrs. Popper and prepares to spend his off-season reading about the Arctic regions. He even writes to his favorite explorer, Adm. Drake. But he doesn’t expect the answer Adm. Drake sends: a special delivery. With the arrival of a penguin, Cart. Cook, life at the Popper’s will never be the same!

Children will enjoy watching Mr. Popper’s hopes and dreams come to life through a series of unexpected and exciting changes.
