Mr. Pennington is a character in Barbie in The Pink Shoes. He is the father of Tara Pennington, who is the female lead at Madame Natasha's dance company, and he attends all of her rehearsals.


Mr. Pennington is first seen sitting in the empty audience section applauding for her daughter's rehearsal performance. Afterwards, when Kristyn rips her shoes, he tries to convince Madame Natasha to let his daughter have another solo - Kristyn's. But Madame Natasha tells him that his daughter already has enough solos and walks away.

At the final show, he is seen very happy and he cheerfully applauds for Tara's performance, but when Kristyn's performance becomes a huge success, he is seen making a face but is forced to applaud because everybody was applauding.


Mr. Pennington is a proud man. He is vain just because of his daughter. He classifies Kristyn as inferior just because of her dancing style. He is also funny.


  • In the Ballet World, Rothbart is based on him.
  • He likes any type of jerky, saying it is a good source of protein.


  • "What else are they gonna see? Falling cows? Check. An octopus in a milkmaid costume? Double check."
  • "She can do it." (Madame Natasha: "What?") "Tara, Tara, she can do the solo for that Favorday girl. Where are my manners? A jerky jerky? All protein Madam."
  • "Capisce?"
  • "Crystal. Who's blasting the AC? It's freezing in here. Brrr."
