Newcomers to town might find it odd that the season’s most hotly anticipated new show was written by a team of fifth graders. That’s the magic of Manton Avenue Project, though: students learn playwriting and watch professional adult actors perform them. Olneyville, The Operetta! was written collaboratively by ten students in the non-profit’s after school program. Students were given a walking tour of the neighborhood by Sarah Zurier from the RI Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission, and they worked with Girls Rock RI on songwriting and Verdant Vibes on composition. A whole team of adult actors, musicians, and crew members will bring the show to life.
