Event description

Description

In an effort to provide quality, family entertainment and to compliment the grade level performances provided by The Lancaster School District, Lancaster County First Steps Partnership is sponsoring Mr. Popper's Penguins, performed by the Children's Theatre of Charlotte

About Mr. Popper

Mr. Popper spend his time daydreaming of adventures in far-off lands while Mrs. Popper scrimps and saves to put beans on the table. When a spirited penguin arrives on their doorstep, a new horizon (and flock!) opens before them! Come along for an unforgettable adventure in this 1930s-inspired musical based on the classic book.

Synopsis

In the town of Stillwater, 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, Capt. Cook, life at the Popper’s will never be the same!

About The Children's Theatre of Charlotte

The mission of the Children's Theatre of Charlotte is to create theatre experiences, inspiring generations to explore the wonder of their world.

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte has grown to become one of the top theatre and education organizations for young people in the United States. Nationally recognized for the breadth and strength of its programs, Children's Theatre of Charlotte provides more than 250,000 experiences for children and families a year with technically imaginative productions and wide-ranging education programs for young people.

Each year we mount professional productions for children and families, with the curtain rising more than 600 times during a season – that’s more than any other theatre company in the state. The Charlotte Observer’s theatre critic called Children’s Theatre of Charlotte “the city’s leading professional troupe,” and each season our actors, designers and directors receive numerous awards for their work on the stage. Another critic called our work “the most technically imaginative and resourceful theatre productions in the region.” It’s Broadway caliber theatre, the best in the region.
