Critically acclaimed “Paddington Gets In A Jam” tour comes to the MAC

The beloved, award-winning stage show Paddington Gets in a Jam comes to the Mountain Arts Center on February 27.
Watch Paddington, the famous, accident-prone bear, as he takes to the stage in this fun filled slapstick comedy.
“‘Paddington Gets in a Jam’ is a great show for the whole family. Paddington is a wonderful character, always friendly, polite, and eager to be of use to others,” says Jonathan Rockefeller, the show’s creator and director. “If you’ve read the (Paddington) books or seen the movies, you know you are in for all sorts of messy, sticky and hilarious predicaments.”
Paddington Gets in a Jam is currently on tour following its New York City debut in 2019, where it was a New York Times Critics’ Pick.
“Hilarious! Charming! Captivating!” - The New York Times
“The Hottest Family Show in Town!” - BroadwayWorld

About the Show
Paddington is making his favorite marmalade jam with the help of the Brown’s housekeeper Mrs. Bird, but they run out of sugar, so Paddington heads next door to borrow some from Mr. Curry. The usually grumpy Mr. Curry is even more short tempered than ever as he prepares for a visit from his great aunt who is a stickler for tidiness. Paddington, feeling sorry for Mr. Curry, volunteers to help him with his chores. Unfortunately for Paddington, his good intentions end up leading to chaos, as one by one each of his jobs starts to have an unexpected outcome!
Will Paddington be able to fix everything before Mr. Curry and his great aunt arrive home?
Paddington Gets In A Jam will be Monday, February 27th at 7:30 p.m. at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, Ky. Tickets start at $22 and can be purchased by visiting the MAC Box Office, by calling 888-MAC-ARTS, or click
