Sunday 24 June, 11.30am
Presented by Long Nose Puppet Theatre
Adapted from the award winning book by Polly Dunbar.
Ben is delighted when he rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. “Hello, Penguin!” says Ben. Penguin says nothing. What can Ben do to make Penguin speak?
Follow the twists and turns of this wonderful tale, in which a silent Penguin turns marvelously eloquent and a little boy finally gets his heart’s desire.
Take an hour out to restore your faith in all that is good about being alive with Long Nose Puppets’ Penguin.’ – The Argus
‘It’s a warm-hearted show, with some wonderful sharp edges that delight rather than scare. It’s done with impressive imagination, and the energetic music is a perfect companion to the narrative, the puppetry is of an excellent standard and there’s an inventiveness and imagination that has resulted in a gem of a show.’ – Fringe Review
‘The dreamy, almost hypnotic quality of this show is reminiscent of 1970s children’s shows like Bagpuss, even down to the droll-voiced narrator, and the piece exudes a quiet confidence in its lo-fi magic that is both compelling and justified.’ – Total Theatre
