A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Simon, a young man with autism, participated in the Playhouse Penguin Project for several years and it made a marked improvement in his ability to connect with other people. He was never a hugger, but has begun offering hugs. In fact, he runs across the lobby to give the staff a farewell hug after rehearsals. HIs mom thinks we must be "Simon whisperers" as he has decided to include us in his world.
James, a Penguin Project actor with autism, has aged out of the program but knowing how important it has been in his life, James in now a rehearsal assistant keeping track of our schedule and running the computer for music cues. HIs mom teared up as she thanked us for including him in this way because being needed at one of his favorite places is a highlight of the day for him.
