What happens if you take talented theatre professionals, add the best storyteller in Toronto and mix it with great love for children? You get the best performance for the little ones!
In a big bright world, a penguin chick hatches from an egg.
He has to find out who he is and what his name is, and he will do so by going around half the globe. Along the way, he will try to make friends with the wise and the cunning, with the slow and the fast, with some kind and not-so-kind animals.

"Pin-Pin the Eggsplorer" is an unusual performance: the audience will sit in an open house-style decoration right on stage, and all the action will be shown on the walls of the house, and right in front of the audience. The performance includes nursery rhymes, songs and poems lovingly created by the founder of the Canadian Association of Storytellers for Children, Sally Jaeger, as well as some brand new songs written by her exclusively for this show.

Even though the audience is the smallest, the scale of the performance is immense.
2 bright and talented actors, colourful shadow puppets, a beautiful hero penguin puppet, numerous songs and rhymes, heartfelt music and some interactive elements.

All these extraordinary pieces will make your child’s first theatre experience joyful and memorable.

The idea to bring such a performance to the youngest audiences was born from a great love for children and theatre.
As parents, we would like young children to have theatre as an option for entertainment, and we decided to create it ourselves.

We have created this performance for young children because we believe that in a modern theater space there should be more representation for very young children. And they are worthy of real high art, made in their language, with respect for them and great love.
