The Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse has created a new after-school theatre program for kids called Winter Stars. The program is an exploration of all things theatre, with special focus on developing performance skills and creating original work. Weekly activities will include warm ups, theatre games, movement exercises and scene study.

The program takes place on Mondays and is open to all Island children grades 3 to 8, with or without theatre experience. Kids will be split into two groups based on grade level (3 to 5 and 6 to 8). The course instructors are artistic director MJ Bruder Munafo, actor Anna Yukevich and seasoned camp counselor Steven Ring, with other guest instructors.
