“Adults and children left with smiles on their faces and a warm feeling in their heart.” ── Time Out London

“Cozy and enchanting” ── The Stage, UK

A sunny, funny performance set in a land of ice and snow

How many penguins are too many? Reclusive Mr Polaro can’t even cope with one! The solitary polar bear is happiest when reading the newspaper, listening to jazz, or looking after his lighthouse. But life takes a livelier turn when high-spirited Penguina becomes his new neighbour. As the festive season approaches, a host of fluffy penguin friends start arriving by car, boat and balloon, turning Mr Polaro’s quiet white world upside down. Can these cute, cuddly little birds eventually melt his heart?

An entrancingly off-beat story of friendship and tolerance from Edinburgh-based Frozen Charlotte, buoyed by bouncy music and beguiling design. Prepare to be intrigued as countless penguins pop up all over the stage, along with other playful surprises!
