More Information on Penguins
When being different brings the most wonderful of surprises…
Roy and Silo are just like the other penguin pairs at Central Park Zoo – they walk, play, swim and dance together. Roy and Silo are two happy boys, but when the zookeeper finds them trying to hatch a rock, he has a clever idea that could mean Roy and Silo raising a chick for real.
Penguins is a unique and engaging show for children about friendship, fun, identity and the ever-changing meaning of family. This delightful new theatre and dance production is based on a true story reported in the New York Times that touched hearts worldwide.
The creative team includes award-winning children’s director Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney and international choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra.

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
