In these photos Ms. Panagiota Voutsina shows off the local facilities at The Lighthouse for the Blind that offer a staging area for plays by the theater troupe and the choir.

The Theater of the Blind is active in producing classic and contemporary plays for local and festival audiences. 

Similarly, the Choir of the Blind performs in many venues and produces holiday recordings for sale. Both organizations provide a valuable outlet for expression and for showcasing the talents of the blind performers who participate. The participants include blind clients of all ages and even some of the sighted staff from The Lighthouse for the Blind who enjoy singing and acting.

Recently the theater troupe performed in a festival at the historic open-air theater at the base of the Acropolis and received widely positive reviews. The choir has produced numerous CDs that are popular holiday gifts and provide a lasting reminder of artistic achievement for the participants.

Your support can keep the Theater Troupe and Choir performing. Your donations will be targeted to transporting the groups to various festivals to perform, to acquire costumes and sets, and to reproduce CDs of the choir and DVDs of the theater performances.

If you have ever considered helping to improve the lives of others less fortunate than you, now is the perfect time to act.
