Performed by students with special needs and their mentors
Northern Starz Children’s Theatre is the first Minnesota national replication site for THE PENGUIN PROJECT, a program that empowers children with special needs through theatre. Northern Starz’ second Penguin Project Performance, Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 film and the 2014 Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within. Aladdin and his three friends are down on their luck until he discovers a magic lamp and the Genie with power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character. All roles are filled by young artists with developmental disabilities including Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities visual impairment, hearing impairment, and other neurological disorders. They are joined on stage by dedicated “peer mentors” – children the same age without disabilities who have volunteered to work side-by-side with them through four months of rehearsals and through the final performance.
