Clark Youth Theater's Penguin Project
Now in our seventh year, the Penguin Project at Clark Youth Theatre offers not only theatre, but also fun and friends! Artists with disabilities and their volunteer peer mentors gather each year to present a fully staged musical like Aladdin, Jr., The Music Man, Jr., Seussical, Jr., The Little Mermaid, Jr., or The Lion King, Jr.! No previous experience required, just a willingness to show up and participate in the fun. Weekly rehearsals culminate in a full performance in the spring or early summer.
Artists and Mentors should be ages 10 and up, with some exceptions if space is available in the program, and parents are very welcome to attend – we love our parent volunteers! During the 2020-2021 season, our Penguin Project work will be both online and socially distanced, in person in the Park surrounding Clark Youth Theatre. Full participation is allowed either way – we will have filmed and live portions of our showcase production this year!
Don’t forget Clark Youth Theatre for all of your youth theatre programming needs! In addition to the Penguin Project, we offer a full range of free-to-participate theatre productions, Saturday Classes, Homeschool Classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 11 weeks of Summer, Fall and Spring Break Camp!
