MR POPPER’S PENGUINS COMES TO GLASGOW’S SEC THIS CHRISTMAS!

Tuesday 18 December 2018 – Sunday 6 January 2019
Lomond Auditorium, SEC, Glasgow

 SEC Glasgow has announced the arrival of family musical – Mr Popper’s Penguins, which will open at the Lomond Auditorium for a Christmas season from the 18 December 2018 to 6 January 2019.

In the small town of Stillwater, Mr. and Mrs. Popper are pleasant, predictable people. But when a package for the Poppers produces a penguin, chaos waddles into their lives! This hit musical adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater’s popular book (also made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey) features a remarkable family of penguin puppets and original songs like “Chills 4 U” and “Poles Apart” in a fun and fast-paced 55 minutes.

With original music & lyrics, and lots of laughs this production is brought to you by Kenny Wax Family Entertainment whose productions include We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and What the Ladybird Heard.

The cast includes Richard Holt (Mr. Popper), Monica Nash (Mrs. Popper), Susanna Jennings (Greta/Admiral Drake), Christopher Finn (Captain Cook/Mr. Greenbaum) and Oliver Byng (Understudy/ASM).

Directed by Emma Earle, designed by Zoe Squire with puppetry design by Nick Barnes, co-founder of Blind Summit, Mr Popper’s Penguins features lyrics by Richy Hughes and music by Luke Bateman (Stiles and Drewe Prize winners, 2015). Lighting design is by Ric Mountjoy and sound design is by Jason Barnes.

Tickets on sale now priced  £14.25 (including admin fee) available from www.sec.co.uk or 0844 395 4000
