Mr. Popper's Penguins is a delightful musical based on the beloved, award-winning book by Richard & Florence Atwater.

Mr. Popper, a humble house painter, gets a cool surprise when Antarctic explorer Admiral Drake sends him a special delivery... A penguin! One penguin, becomes two, and before you know it, Mr. Popper finds himself the owner of a family of penguins. With so many extra mouths to feed, Mr. Popper thinks up a brilliant plan. He will turn the talented penguins into a traveling vaudeville act! Adventure and hilarity ensue as their show goes on the road. Mr. Popper and family discover that a little inventiveness and creativity can make any dream come true.

This charming tale touches the heart, and promises to be a treat for all ages with lots of love, laughter, fun, mischief, and toe-tapping tunes. Be the first in Singapore to catch this splendid show. Don't miss it!
