The Perlin Players are an extraordinary group of young people who have not let their developmental disability stop them in any way from being productive members of their community. These performers, who are clients of the Perlin Centre, are well known for their many successful Lip-Sync productions and Dinner Theatre Shows. The Perlin Centre is owned and operated by the Vera Perlin Society. Its mission is to provide a quality structured day program for individuals with a developmental disability, 18 years of age and older, living in St. Johns and surrounding areas. This program also provides an opportunity for Employment through the Employment Division.
