“Now a penguin may look very strange in a living room, but a living room looks very strange to a penguin.”
The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy and Stockard, Johnston, Brown & Netardus Law Firm are veryexcited to present Mr. Popper’s Penguins as its next production.
Money is tight and times are tough in the town of Stillwater. With no houses to paint till next Spring, Mr.Popper is stuck at home daydreaming of adventures in far off lands, while Mrs. Popper must scrimp and save just to put beans on the table. But with the unexpected arrival of a spirited penguin named Captain Cook, a new horizon opens before them. As a quiet partnership expands into a boisterous flock, the Poppers learn that there’s no problem that can’t be solved with steady determination, lots of love, and a dash of unconventionality. Join this offbeat family on an unforgettable adventure based on the 1938 classic by Richard and Florence Atwater.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins features 31 of our talented Academy students and is directed by Academy Director JasonCrespin.
