Fourth graders act up

Posted February 15, 2006

It's time for the fourth graders from the Martha's Vineyard Public Charter and the West Tisbury schools to step into the spotlight. The students will perform this Saturday at the Vineyard Playhouse, ending their 10-week Fourth Grade Theatre Project. The two schools are the last to perform, bringing to an end the 13th annual in-school theatre program.

"Ponies, Penguins and Seals, Oh My!" will be performed by Rebecca Solway's class, and "The Book's Promise" by Mary Boyd's class, both of the West Tisbury School. Dede Hagen and Jeannie Correira's charter school class will entertain with "Almost Gone With the Wind."

Fourth Grade Theatre Project, Saturday, Feb. 17, 3 pm and 7 pm, at the Vineyard Playhouse, 24 Church Street, Vineyard Haven. Tickets: $6 for adults, $4 for children. For more information, call the box office at 508-696-6300 or visit
