Since August 16 six newly graduated acting students from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London along with playwrights David Simpatico and Saviana Stanescu, and director, Nona Sheppard, have been in residence at the Vineyard Arts Project, located at 215 Upper Main street in Edgartown. The company has been working on a selection of new plays and on Friday, August 26, and Sunday, August 28, both shows at 6 p.m., the results of their residency will be on display.

Alumni of RADA include Snape, Voldemort and Hannibel Lecter, also known as Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, and Sir Anthony Hopkins, to name just a few. Who knows what future stars will be among this weekend's performers.
