Our most recent touring show, The Gingerbread Man, achieved 84% attendance across 144 shows at 22 venues between February 2018 and January 2019. Almost 27,000 people saw the performance and our seven-week Christmas run at Theatre Royal Plymouth beat all box office records, achieving 90% capacity and taking almost £97k on ticket sales. The Man Who Wanted to be a Penguin will employ similar marketing tactics and promises to be similarly successful.

The Man Who Wanted to be a Penguin is co-commissioned by The Albany and ARC Stockton, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, with additional support from The Lyric, Bridport and The Point, Eastleigh.
