This summer, three groups of Penguins are heading out to Lebanon, Greece, and India, to perform new music theatre shows to disadvantaged children.
Our projects in Lebanon and Greece will focus on working with child refugees. Both countries are receiving a very large number of migrants, and need all the help they can get to provide help, not just logistically but also mentally, to the many families who have had to fled their war-ridden homes.
And in India, we shall be continuing our work of bringing music and drama to children from slums and orphanages, children who very rarely have access to any kind of artistic education or activities.
Team Greece: Verity Poulston, Joe Partridge, Abigal Heath, Anna Litvinenko, Lauren Brown, Elisabeth Swedlund
Team India: Leah Gayer, Vittorio Angelone, Jay Jones, Ruth Dingle, Megan Bird, Jack Flamminger
Team Lebanon: Victoria Creighton, Mhairi Gayer, Edward Holmes, Shreyans Iyer, Jack Holton, Elisabeth Swedlund
We’re funding the cost of these projects ourselves… Any help will be massively appreciated!
