Make a dramatic difference to a child


Storyline by Paul McEneaney

A Prime Theatre, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Cahoots NI production.

Age: 3+ Duration: 45 minutes

When being different brings the most wonderful of surprises...

Roy and Silo are two male Chinstrap penguins. Just like the other penguin pairs at Central Park Zoo, they walk, play, swim and dance together. When the duo decide to try and hatch a rock in place of an egg, they find themselves on an adventure that could mean raising a chick for real!

Penguins is a unique and engaging show for children about friendship, fun, identity and the ever-changing meaning of family. Penguins was designed in association with primary teachers to help support the delivery of 'Relationships and Diverse Family Groups' in the new curriculum.

This delightful new theatre and dance production was inspired by a true story reported in the New York Times that touched hearts worldwide. After two successful tours of England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the 2020 US tour was interrupted by the Coronavirus.

Created & Directed by PAUL BOSCO MCENEANEY Choreographer CARLOS PONS GUERRA
