The Manton Avenue Project Presents “This Is Where I Come From, the family tree plays”

The Manton Avenue Project’s next performance, “THIS IS WHERE I COME FROM, the family tree plays” during the weekend of September 25th at The Media and Performing Arts Center at Met Public, 325 Public Street (Liberty Building), in Providence. Performances are Friday evening at 7:00 PM, Saturday at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM, and Sunday at 3:00 PM.

The Manton Avenue Project is a non-profit organization that unites children living in Providence’s Olneyville neighborhood with local theater professionals to create original theater together.

“THIS IS WHERE I COME FROM” is a production of our Wild Card! Program and is part of the 2009 Providence Latino CommUNITY Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The seven plays, written by children ages 10-13 who have collectively composed a total of 42 plays with us, will be based on true family history stories gathered by the young playwrights from their patents, grandparents and other older family members.

Tickets are free but reservations are encouraged. For reservations, call (401) 331-7007. For directions to Met Public, and for more information about the Project, go to
