We believe that theater has the power to transform lives. We see it all the time, starting with the very young. Children who participate in theater… learn to express themselves, learn the value working cooperatively with others, and grow in self-confidence.
Adults who act in or simply enjoy plays are entertained or provoked, challenged or transported to places they can only dream of. And when, in the quiet darkness, free from outside distractions, we watch the fictional lives of others unfold on stage, it alters the way we think and feel about our own lives.
That is why we committed to rejuvenating this beautiful house, why we seek to produce and present top-notch, professional productions showcasing the work of the finest playwrights actors, and directors, why we run year-round theatrical programs for children and adults and why we want to do even more.
We have a vision for our future. It involves acquiring housing for visiting actors and a permanent home for building and storing sets, props, and costumes. We want to offer acting and movement lessons for all who are interested. We intend to create an operating budget and endowment that will secure our operation for years after most of us are gone. That’s how valuable we believe this playhouse is to all the communities on Martha’s Vineyard. We hope you will join us in this mission.
