“Mummy is good at swimming,” says Little Penguin. “She’ll be back home soon, won’t she?”

“She sure will,” says Daddy Penguin.

Amidst the snowy Antarctic landscape, Mummy Penguin is off to find a fishy dinner for her family. Daddy and Little Penguin watch in suspense as Mummy swims through the icy waters, climbs the perilous cliffs and tiptoes past some grumpy, just-awakened seals. Can she do it? Well done, Mummy Penguin!

With a nod to the fascinating nature of penguin parenting, Well Done, Mummy Penguin is a brand new stage adaptation of the latest picture book from award-winning writer and illustrator Chris Haughton, and an irresistible ode to family bonds and incredible parents everywhere.

Brought to life by Can’t Sit Still and the creative team behind Oh No, George!, Well Done, Mummy Penguin features daring acrobatics, integrated sign language and heartwarming humour. A perfect wintery treat for everyone aged 3 and up.
