Mr Popper’s Penguins comes to Greater Manchester this Christmas
Puppets, penguins, packing crates and pure magic abound in this phenomenally popular and successful production of Mr Popper’s Penguins, returning to Manchester this Christmas. Running from Tuesday 26th November through to 31st December, acclaimed children’s theatre company Pins & Needles bring their award-winning and smash-hit show to Waterside in Sale for frost-filled, festive fun for all the family.
Painter and Decorator by day, Mr Popper spends his time dreaming of Antarctic Adventures. He is astounded when one day a packing crate arrives on his – and out of which waddles a penguin…
With original songs and performing penguin puppets to charm audiences of all ages, this
delightful and action-packed 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 to warm hearts and souls on a cold winter’s day.

Darren Adams, Manager of Waterside, said:
“We are so thrilled to welcome back Pins & Needles to Waterside after two hugely successful and record breaking years which saw unprecedented sales and responses to their stunning and charming productions of Father Christmas and The Bear. This year, we are delighted that their internationally acclaimed Mr Popper’s Penguins is making its way back to the UK after a successful New York run on Broadway and right on to our stage for the first time to thrill and delight our audiences.”
