“an ideal introduction to theatre for little people”
The Stage

“a sweet, breezy show to brighten up the long winter”
The Guardian

The world is a very big place, especially for a tiny baby penguin who is just finding her feet. The shimmering stars and glistening snow spin around our little hero, while the mountains tower high and the wind rushes to and fro. And although baby penguin may be small, her family know she’s the biggest thing of all.

This early years favourite is a lovely and touching story about a parent and their love for their child by much loved children’s author Emma Dodd.

Me… is aimed at ages 2 – 5. Based on the early years picture book, this production has very little spoken text and follows the simple journey of a newly-born emperor penguin as she finds her feet in the big wide world. The show is very gentle and only has one moment of peril where the baby penguin gets lost in a snowstorm before finding her way back to her mother.
