Winter Stars

WINTER STARS is the Playhouse’s after-school theater program for kids. The program is a fun exploration of all things theater, with special focus on developing performance skills and working together. Artistic Director MJ Bruder Munafo and actress Katherine Reid teach the program. Weekly activities include theater games, movement exercises, scene study, and much more! The program is open to all island children in grades 4 to 9, with or without theater experience. The next 6 week session begins on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 and ends on Tuesday, December 17, 2019.

Students must be pre-registered online and pay an annual “star membership” fee of $50. There is no additional charge for the fall session, thanks to a grant from the Permanent Endowment of Martha’s Vineyard.

Parents – please pre-register your children by November 12 at latest (we begin November 5) for the fall 2019 session of Winter Stars. Late registrations (after November 5) will be accepted, but all children must be registered in advance before they show up for a class.

For families who cannot afford the membership fee, we offer scholarships and financial aid. We want every child who has a passion for theater to have the opportunity to attend Winter Stars and/or Summer Stars. Please ask us how we can help to make that happen!

If you have questions, please email MJ Bruder Munafo at with WINTER STARS in the subject line.

The fall session runs for 6 weeks total and includes everyone in Grades 4-9. After January 1, 2020, the group will be split into two days.

FALL SESSION for Grades 4-9 on Tuesdays – November 5, 12, 19 & December 3, 10, 17. Time: 3:30 pm – 4:45 pm.
