Mandatory Information Meeting

DATE TBA

Ages 8-21 with and without special needs.

The meeting will last less than one hour.


After a decade of productions starring youth with special needs in Illinois, where the Penguin Project was founded by Dr. Andrew Morgan, GCT is proud to have been the first theatre outside the State of Illinois to replicate the incredibly inspiring program here in Gettysburg, PA.


An annual production that stars youth with special needs ages 8-21 along with their peer mentors without special needs working side by side from the first day of rehearsal to the final bow at the performance, The Penguin Project of GCT is a beautiful program and shows everyone that theatre truly changes lives!
