"The antics of the kind-hearted, yet accident-prone Paddington have brought joy to millions of children and families around the world. I am thrilled to bring this celebrated bear to the stage in a way that audiences have never experienced him before."
In Jonathan Rockefeller's Paddington Gets in a Jam, Paddington is at home making his favorite marmalade jam, with the help of the Brown's housekeeper Mrs. Bird, but they run out of sugar. Paddington goes next door to borrow some sugar, where he finds his ever-grumpy neighbor Mr. Curry in a panic, expecting an important visitor. Paddington volunteers to help get the house ready for the visit, but unfortunately for Paddington his good intentions lead to some hysterical chaos.
Paddington Gets in a Jam is created and directed by Jonathan Rockefeller with Puppet Creation by Rockefeller Productions.
