Fourth Grade Theater Project
The Fourth Grade Theater Project is an intensive and fun twelve lesson introduction to theater as an artistic collaboration. The program is part of the curriculum at every island school. The first four lessons of the project are held in the school classroom followed by eight on-site sessions plus performances at The Vineyard Playhouse. The students participate in every element of theater, working on one of several teams: acting, costumes, sets & props, scenic arts, production or technical.
The plays you are privileged to watch are strictly a product of the children’s imaginations. Together, they created the characters, settings and plots and made suggestions for dialogue. These ideas were then written into play scripts by the adult playwrights.
