Sally Corporation, a leader in designing and building animatronics and interactive dark ride attractions, has created a new animated penguin show for Chimelong’s new Penguin Hotel – Penguins on Parade.
Penguins on Parade musical reviews starring 16 life size animatronic penguins. Penguin species from all over the world feature as characters in the show: MC Peng is an emperor penguin from Antarctica; Miss Isabelle is from New Zealand; from the Falkland Islands are Madame Wobbles, a gentoo penguin, and Sir Auk, a macaroni penguin; and Little Blue is a little blue penguin is from Australia.
Sally Corporation’s animatronic penguins sing and dance to originally composed music and lyrics including the catchy audience participation number The Penguin Shuffle as well as songs inspired by the penguin’s native countries.
A CGI video of cartoon penguins with humorous visuals, and a theatrical light show accompany the musical numbers.
Two 8.5 minute shows run daily at Chimelong’s Ice Palace Theater in the theme park’s new Penguin Hotel. In addition to the two main shows there are five 1.5 minute mini shows each day. And between the shows, guests can get an encore performance of the Penguin Shuffle on demand by placing a hand in the special handprint on the ice stage.
“After completing the "White Tiger Mountain" show for Chimelong Paradise we were asked to create another show for the new Penguin Hotel at the award winning Ocean Kingdom Resort. We worked with the talented team of designers at Bruce Robinson and Associates to create the ice castle setting and compose the production. After writing and producing all soundtracks, the entire production was translated into Mandarin and talent was brought in from around the Guangzhou area to bring the appropriate personalities to our characters, ” said John Wood, CEO of Sally Corporation. “We love it when our customers keep coming back for more of Sally's magic. We look forward to doing even greater things for them in the years to come.”
