New Stage Players is pleased to announce the launch of The New Stage Players Penguin Project, a new program focusing on giving individuals with developmental disabilities/special needs the opportunity to develop creative and social skills as they partner and network with others, while participating in a fully realized musical production.

The Penguin Project was created and developed by Dr. Andrew Morgan, a developmental pediatrician for neurodevelopmental disabilities. Since discovering the benefits that theatre brings to children with Down ’s syndrome, autism, Asperger’s, and other neurological, developmental and physical disorders, he has helped replicate the Penguin Project in local chapters across the United States.
New Stage Players Penguin Project is the 26th chapter in the nation and is the exclusive home for this innovative program in Siouxland.
