A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
From February-June 2017 is LCP’s fourth year for The Penguin Project. This program pairs children with special needs (artists) with peer mentors. Between 25 and 35 children with special needs participate each year, along with a similar number of mentors. The Penguin Project is a way for children ages 10-21 to be able to act, sing and dance in a live theatre production in front of an audience in a safe and supportive environment. LCP is a leading community theatre in an effort for the program, based in Illinois, to go national.
Eric, one of our Penguins who is on the Autism Spectrum, told his mom that the Playhouse, “It feels like home.” When she asked him why he felt that way, he told her, “I don’t have to pretend to be anyone but me.”
