Penguin Project: The Wizard of Oz Company List

PENGUIN PROJECT: The Wizard of Oz Young Performer’s Edition
Company List

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and passion for Penguin Project.

First rehearsal will be Tuesday, February 12th, from 6:30-7:45 p.m. in the Studio Theatre.

Please email Christine Cottam at to confirm acceptance in the company.

Please note that a great deal of thought has gone into creating the Penguin Project 2019 company with many factors taken into consideration including, but not limited to, schedules, ages, engagement with others and demonstration of enthusiasm for the rehearsal and performance process. We are committed to maintaining a quality experience and a safe environment for our Penguins and will not be able to have every interested child in the program this year. If your child’s name is not on this list, please bring them back again for future Penguin Projects.

We know this company roster will not please everyone, but it is important to respect the decisions and move forward in a positive light for the good of the Penguin Project and everyone involved. We thank you for your understanding.
