Money is tight and times are tough in the town of Stillwater. An out-of-work Mr. Popper is stuck at home daydreaming of adventures in far-off lands, 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. Join this offbeat family on their unforgettable adventure in Mr. Popper's Penguins, a world premiere musical based on the 1938 classic by Richard and Florence Atwater. The flipper-filled fun waddles from the page to the stage at Chicago's Lifeline Theatre.
