Winter & Spring Season

After our extended summer season ends, the Playhouse continues with additional performances and events from November through May. Listed below are the mainstays of the “off-season”. In 2020 – 2021, all of our off-season events will be virtual.

Jenny’s Drama Salon: Playwright, actress and humor writer Jenny Allen presents a once-in-awhile drama salon, featuring casual dramatic readings, interesting guests, stimulating conversation, theater trivia and more (including great homemade baked goods when we are in the Marilyn Meyerhoff Lobby).

Poetry Cafe, aka Poetry & Pie: MV Poet Laureate emeritus Arnie Reisman organizes readings by Island poets whose words offer unique perspectives on life on the Vineyard and in the world at large. Monthly on a Wednesday night, from November through April. Delicious Pie Chicks pies are served at the readings, when we are able to gather again.

Wicked Good Musical Revue: Talented and enthusiastic musicians and singers perform a selection of songs from standards to Broadway led by musical directors Molly Conole and David Behnke. Sure to warm up the coldest winter evening!

Shakespeare for the Masses: Lively interpretations by Chelsea McCarthy and Nicole Galland condense a full length play into a short romp with lots of comedic antics. Both the cast and audience share a great time!

Monday Night Movies: From November through March we present a diverse selection of classic movies. Interesting insights provided by movie aficionado and co-curator Jamie Alley. Movies will resume in the fall of 2021.

Spring Solo Shows:  During the month of May, we present a lineup of superb solo performers on the Patricia Neal Stage. Each show is different, but every actor shares their stories in often humorous, and always heartfelt, ways.

Wintertime Melodies: Our newest winter offering – a casual musical cabaret hosted by Shelagh Hackett and Paul Munafo. Guest performers sometimes join in the fun, when we are downstairs in the Marilyn Meyerhoff Lobby.
