Running at Sale’s Waterside Arts from Wed 30 Nov to Sat 31 Dec, The Man Who Wanted To Be A Penguin brings family-friendly ‘playful energy’ and a mix of puppetry, music and song to follow the story of an extraordinary explorer whose journey to Antarctica celebrates ‘wild creativity and the joy of individuality’.

Presented by the Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company, The Man Who Wanted To Be A Penguin recounts the latest mission of the imaginative protagonist, a ‘curious conjurer’ who hopes to learn the penguin language, before travelling to their kingdom in the hope of being welcomed with open wings.

Praised as ‘a wonderful gem that will appeal to children and adults alike’ by the Bournemouth Echo, the show follows the success of previous Stuff and Nonsense productions, including The Little Red HenThe Enormous Turnip3 Little Pigs and more.

Tickets are £12-£14, with school bookings available and selected shows offering low-income family tickets for £6.
