Hometown Spotlight: Acting on Acceptance


 This weeks Hometown Spotlight shows a performance you won’t want to miss with a cast that wants to change how the world sees people with disabilities.

The Penguin Project at the Greenwood Community Theatre includes children ages 6 up to adults at age 28.

The director performers and mentors have several months to learn a play and rehearse at the Greenwood Theatre.

The mentors are neurotypical volunteers that stand with artists on stage to help if needed with lines or dance moves. 

It’s an event they’d like to see gain more popularity so if you’re interested in performing or volunteering,  visit The Penguin Project here
