Summer Stars Children’s Theater Camp

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we did not hold in-person Summer Stars in 2020. We did hold Virtual Stars. We are not sure about summer 2021 yet. When we know,  we will post information here. Thank you.

A fun weekly program for ages 8 – 13 exploring the magic of theater and art!

HOPE to see you in July & August, 2021

MV Playhouse, 24 Church Street in downtown Vineyard Haven

Summer Stars is MV Playhouse’s small, friendly camp focusing on creating theater and exploring artistic expression through play-making, performance, music, movement, improvisation and character development. Year-round islanders and summer visitors become friends and learn to work together. We provide engaging individualized and small group experiences. The camp is open to children of all abilities. Each Friday afternoon there is a special show for family and friends.  OR 508-696-6300


• Week One: EEK! It’s Ancient Greek Week!

Where did theater start? Back to Ancient Greece we go to explore the
origins of comedy and tragedy, masks and myth – and have some fun along the way!

• Week Two: Acting Out Art

Every painting tells a story, and a picture is worth a thousand words. This
week, we will be bringing works of art to vivid life on the stage!

• Week Three: Folk Tales From Afar

We’ve all heard the tales of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.
But every culture has its own stories, folktales, and fables. 

• Week Four: Shaking Up Shakespeare!

What could possibly make Shakespeare even better? Watching mayhem
unfold as characters from Shakespeare’s greatest works collide! What could go wrong?

• Week Five: Fractured Fairytales

We’ll write and perform our own fabulous fairy tales this week!
