The West Tisbury School fourth-graders will perform on Saturday, Feb. 16, and bring to a close this year's Fourth Grade Theater Project at the Vineyard Playhouse in Vineyard Haven. The two plays are "Pharaoh's Phearless Pheline" performed by Mary Boyd and Jamie Langley's class; and "Blackbeard's Back!" by Rebecca Solway's class. One play is based on ancient history and the other contains a bit of Island history.
The student actors include: Zach Bresnick, Delilah Meegan, Jessie Haynes, Marcelle DeSousa-Alves, Aquinnah Hill, Darby Petterson, Maisie Jarrell, Oliver Silberstein, Lucie Dougherty-Soares, and Peter Engley.
The final weekend closes another successful theatre program, a joint effort between the Vineyard Playhouse and the Island schools.
The project is funded by grants from Comcast, the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council, and the Sharp-Curtis Foundation, as well as Island businesses.
West Tisbury School fourth-grade plays, Saturday, Feb. 16, 3 pm and 7 pm, Vineyard Playhouse, 24 Church Street, Vineyard Haven. Tickets: $6 for adults, $4 for children and are available at the door. For more information, call 508-696-6300 or visit vineyardplayhouse.org.
