Saw Disney's Aladdin, Jr. produced by the Penguin Project due to one of my past co-workers was in it as Jafar. As a result are boss made this one of the social tests to get the team together outside the job.
Unfortunately I didn't pass the social test and was reproved due to my husband being an epileptic was looking for a way to continue watching with flickering lights. Fortunately the theatre was nice enough to work with us in getting things taken care of.
What is the Penguin Project?
The Penguin Project is a musical theatre production that casts youth aged 10-21 with disabilities in all roles. Each Youth Artist will be partnered with on-stage Peer Mentors of a similar age and interests.
Who can participate?
Artists: The Penguin Project is open to any individual age 10-21 with a disability. This includes kids with cognitive, learning, motor, hearing and visual impairments, genetic disorders, and neurological disorders.
Peer Mentors: The Penguin Project utilizes a “peer mentor” system, linking each young artist with an age level peer who does not have a disability. The peer-mentors work side by side with their partners, assisting them throughout the entire rehearsal process and on stage.
Pictures are by LJW photographer Ashley Golledge as the theatre owner asked for photographs not to be taken by the audience.
