For each production, The New Paradigm Theatre Companypartners with a nonprofit organization that reflects the theme of the show to raise awareness and to support that organization’s mission and activities. For its August 2022 production of Disney's "The Little Mermaid," NPT is proud to partner with The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, whose mission is to inspire people of all ages to appreciate and protect the Long Island Sound ecosystem and the global environment through exhibits, conservation and education.
Among the many ways that NPT will collaborate with the Aquarium is by working with teens volunteering in the Aquarium program called ECHO (Education Conservation Heritage and Outreach). “The ocean inspires art in all forms – ‘The Little Mermaid’ being just one example – and this partnership allows us to explore how the ocean inspires us through the performing arts in a way that complements our own exhibits of living animals,” says Jason Patlis, the Maritime’s CEO.
Environmental volunteer activities may include “Clean up the Sound” and other Maritime events as well as “Trash” collected will be designed into our set, costume and puppetry pieces to highlight environmental awareness. NPT’s Little Mermaid students will be a part of creating these items in workshops with professional designers for sets, costumes, props!
New Paradigm Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit theatre promoting social responsibility and fostering creative problem solvers, leaders, and global citizens through theatre arts education and productions.
*If NPT has to cancel the summer production due to pandemic related reasons you will get a refund of your application fee or you may forward it on to the next year.
