Penguin Project preps for fall production
DeKALB – CCT’s Penguin Project has selected Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Junior” for its fall 2013 production.
Organizational meetings for those interested in participating in the group’s September 2013 show will be held 5:30 p.m. Sunday, April 21 and 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, at the First United Methodist Church, 321 Oak St. in DeKalb.
The Penguin Project provides children and young adults ages 10-22 with developmental disabilities the opportunity to take center stage in a Broadway-style musical production, filling all roles from leads to ensemble. Those participants, known as artists, have disabilities including, but not limited to, cerebral palsy, autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, visual impairment, hearing impairment and other neurological disorders. They work side-by-side in rehearsal and during shows with mentors of similar age without disabilities, who will assist the artist in learning songs, memorizing lines, perfecting dance routines and other aspects of the show. Neither artists nor mentors need acting experience to participate.
