The Argus

Ben is delighted when he rips open his present, inside is a penguin. "Hello Penguin!" says Ben. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin; he pulls his funniest face; he puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance. Penguin says nothing... so Ben fires Penguin into OUTER SPACE. Penguin comes back to earth without a word! It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks. And when he does, Ben discovers something that was really worth the wait. 

Penguin is exciting, surreal and full of surprises. The lively songs by Tom Gray of Gomez will have everyone joining in! It’s a spectacular theatre experience for all ages - especially 2-8 year olds!
