MASQUE's Penguin Project production of Seussical Jr.

While you are resting up and enjoying some much deserved time to chill, please put on your calendars to come to see MASQUE's Penguin Project production of Seussical Jr.
This is by far the BEST production you will see this summer, this year, this lifetime! - What is the Penguin Project you ask:
A magical and touching celebration of the human spirit unfolds inside our humble little theatre. A group of students takes to the stage to perform a Jr. version of a well-known Broadway musical.  These productions are unique, however, because all the roles are filled by young artists with developmental disabilities including and not limited to, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, visual impairment, hearing impairments, and other neurological disorders.  They are joined on stage by a dedicated group of “peer mentors” – our Spartans who have volunteered to work side-by-side with them through a few months of rehearsals and all the way through the final performance.  By providing access to theater, The Penguin Project demonstrates that the special challenges of a disability should not handicap a persons ability to participate in life’s experiences.  

“Our penguins may not be able to fly, but that does not prevent their spirits from soaring.”
