Mr. Popper’s Penguins


A booklist for: Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Production dates: March 31 – April 9, 2017

This is a booklist created by Gere Branch library staff to accompany the stage production of Mr. Popper’s Penguins at Gere’s neighbor, The Lincoln Community Playhouse.

The stage musical Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a family-friendly adaptation of Richard and Florench Atwater’s classic children’s novel of the same name, published in 1938, with music by Brett Schrier and lyrcis by Jody Davidson. It is hard enough for Mr. Popper, a simple painter, to support his family. The addition of 12 penguins makes it impossible to make both ends meet – until Mr. Popper has a splendid idea. He will turn the talented penguins into a traveling vaudevillle act! And that’s exactly what he does. The entire family will delight in the adventures of Mr. Popper and his performing feathered friends.
