School Performance: Cahoots NI: Penguins (KCYS)

This performance is part of the Krannert Center Youth Series, school-day performances for public, private, and home schools, grades PreK-12.

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 and based on a true story about love and the ever-evolving meaning of family. A co-production with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Prime Theatre.

Connects to Illinois Learning Standards in Fine Arts, Social/Emotional Learning, and Science.

Recommended for grades PreK-3.
Performance length: 60 minutes
