HELEN COMERFORD & JOHN HEWER

Acclaimed children’s theatre company BARMPOT THEATRE embark on a new tour of PENGUINPIG, an immersive, cautionary yet entertaining tale about e-safety aimed at 3-8 year olds and their families.

Penguinpig is a stage adaptation of the best-selling picture book by Lincolnshire author and teacher Stuart Spendlow (Penguinpig hit number one best-seller status on Amazon in 2015).

A cautionary tale told through puppetry offering a fun-filled show that is both educational and highly entertaining. A story that is accessible on many levels, Penguinpig has plenty of engaging charm whilst carrying an important message for older children to consider with their grown-ups, told through dynamic puppetry, catchy songs and humour.

Sophie reads about an exciting creature called a Penguinpig on the Internet. Filled with delight and intrigue she sets off alone on an adventure to find the adorable creature, leading her to the Zoo. But what will she find inside?

“Brilliant story and great illustrations with an important safety message as well – 10/10 !!! Every school and family needs a copy!”
BBC’s Claude Littner
