Cahoots NI: Penguins

New York City’s Central Park Zoo is home to myriad animals from throughout the world—including a special pair of bonded male penguins who delight in their big-city life by walking, playing, swimming, and dancing together. When the duo attempts to “hatch” a rock, a zookeeper gives them an abandoned egg instead and thus begins a little family adventure. Northern Ireland’s Cahoots NI returns to Krannert Center with an enchanting and heartfelt tale filled with music, dance, and non-verbal theatre, based on a true story about love and the ever-evolving meaning of family.

This performance will last approximately one hour with no intermission.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.

A co-production with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Prime Theatre.
