Established in 2004, The Penguin Project developed with the intent of producing theatrical productions for children age 10 – 25 with All Abilities. What is unique about this specific design is that all roles are filled by young thespians with developmental disabilities (Artists). Each young thespian in the cast will be paired up with a dedicated peer (Mentor) of similar age but with different abilities. Through a four month rehearsal period to the final performances, the Artists and Mentors work side by side to bring their characters and Annie Jr. to life. The Penguin Project brings to light that the challenges of a disability should not impede a young artist’s ability to engage in all of life’s experiences.
Come join The Premiere Playhouse and enjoy this production of Annie Jr. with the whole family!
