Weekend To-Do: 'Mr. Popper's Penguins'

Posted By on Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 4:51 PM

‘MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS'
7 p.m., Children's Theatre, Arkansas Arts Center. $11-$14.

The Children's Theatre opens its season with an adaptation of a beloved children's story. A Newbury Honor Book published in 1939, “Mr. Popper's Penguins,” by Richard and Florence Atwater, builds on a unique conflict: Mr. Popper, a mild-mannered house painter, somehow comes into possession of a dozen Adelie penguins (natives of Antarctica). As the comedy proceeds, Mr. Popper struggles to figure out a way to keep the penguins from eating him out of house and home. The play continues at the Children's Theatre through Oct. 4.
