The Superhero plays are ten great new plays written by the kids of the Manton Avenue Project.

The Manton Avenue Project works with children living in Providence’s Olneyville neighborhood. Kids work together with professional adult artists and create original theater. Their mission is to increase the kids’ self esteem and unleash the kids’ creative voices. The Manton Avenue Project is modelled after New York City’s 52nd Street Project, which has been working with kids in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood since 1981.

    I worked with middle school kids here in Maine under the direction of Daniel Judah Sklar (who initiated the 52nd Street Project) for a couple of two week playmaking workshops. It was amazing how his process works! It can be a transforming experience for kids and a totally rewarding experience for the adults who get to work with them. And for those of you who get to be in the audience, you can expect some of the most inventive material you’ll ever see.
