Established back 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, differently-abled thespians (Artists). Each young thespian in the cast will be paired up with a dedicated peer (Mentor) of similar age. Through a four month rehearsal period to the final performances, the Artists and Mentors work side by side to bring their characters and the show 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. We could not be more thrilled to join The Penguin Project family as the 39th chapter in our nation!
