Empowering Young Artists with Special Needs
Brazosport Center Stages Penguin Project kicks off its second year in January 2023 to culminate in a production of “The Wizard of Oz” in May!
Brazosport Center Stages Penguin Project is a FREE program for artists ages 10-21 with special needs. It provides an opportunity for children with special needs to develop creative skills related to the theater arts and participate in community theater.
To get involved, fill out the Penguin Project Participation Form for both artists and mentors!
Founded in 2004 by Dr. Andrew Morgan and his wife Kathy, the Penguin Project has evolved from a single theater in Peoria, IL to multiple chapters across the country. Brazosport Center Stages is proud to be the first community theater chapter in Texas!
The project serves to facilitate joint participation between young artists with special needs and same-age peers through a community theater experience. Peer mentors work side-by-side with their artist partners and assist throughout the rehearsal and performance process.
Through generous support from The Community Foundation of Brazoria County’s Lowrey Community Service Grant and Olin Corporation, BCS Penguin Project is proud to offer this amazing program again this year!
The Brazosport Center Stages Penguin Project provides a forum of interaction for the young artists, peer mentors, families and local volunteers through community theater experience.
