Non-Profit Theatre organization focusing on family friendly theatre experiences for the Siouxland Community.
New Stage Players has recently acquired a building. We plan to renovate a portion of the building for performance space. It is a large project and we have to do it in phases. $5000 would cover the flooring in this space. Once this project is completed, we will be able to have productions as well as hold auditions and rehearsals in this space rather than renting space at an offsite location. One of our upcoming community projects that we are working on will really benefit from this completed project is the New Stage Players Penguin Project. The Penguin Project takes to the stage to perform a modified version of a well-known Broadway musical. These productions are unique because all the roles are filled by young artists with developmental disabilities. They are joined on stage by a dedicated group of “peer mentors” – children the same age without disabilities who have volunteered to work side-by-side with them through 4 months of rehearsals and through the final performance. By providing access to community theater, The Penguin Project demonstrates that the special challenges of a disability should not handicap a child’s ability to participate in life’s experiences.
