One step at a time.


During the long, cold winter, Mr Penguin carefully guards his egg. Now this new dad needs to look after his newly born chick on his own and he’s not feeling confident. How will father and baby work it out together?

A gorgeous, engaging and highly visual show by Filskit Theatre, the makers of Breaking the Ice (2015), whose signature style features playful and innovative projection and sound. This is a heart-warming tale about a child and parent learning how to thrive in spite of the odds.

Extremely lovely show about the trials and tribulations of a single parent penguin, for ages two-to-five
