Roy and Silo are two male chinstrap penguins. Just like the other penguin pairs at Central Park Zoo, they walk, play, swim and dance together.

When the duo decide to try and hatch a rock in place of an egg, they find themselves on an adventure that could mean raising a chick for real!

This delightful new theatre and dance production is inspired by a true story reported in the New York Times that touched hearts worldwide.

The creative team includes award-winning children’s director Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney and international choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra.

Developing an understanding of difference and diversity in schools: focus LGBTQi

A practical/discussion based CPD led by Andrew Moffat in partnership with Stonewall to support educators in developing the themes of the true story presented onstage in Penguins and in the book And Tango Makes Three by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson (published by Simon & Schuster) As well as providing classroom resources, the session will also demonstrate how schools can support their equality and diversity ethos.

The session will cover:

·         Using Penguins to reduce incidents of homophobic bullying

·         Engaging the parent community

·         Making links to The Equality Act 2010 and the teaching of British values

This is a free CPD for all EYFS and KS1 teachers attending performances of Penguins. And is applicable to anyone working with children and young people.
