Meet Me @Metro IV: Bringing it Home to Watts

941347_10151668494318900_566840833_nThe fourth annual Meet Me @Metro, an event that combines public transit with theater, will be heading back to the Metro Blue Line on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. Join the Watts Village Theater Company for theatrical presentations of original poetry exploring the subjective theme of “home” with musical accompaniment.

“Scattered Joy” will be performed adjacent to 103rd Street Station and “Under the 105” will be performed, appropriately, under the 105 freeway, adjacent to Willowbrook Station.

Both shows will take place simultaneously at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m., allowing audiences to see both performance pieces. The shows will range in length from 25 to 30 minutes, and there will be a 30-minute window afterward to allow for travel between venues. Guests can hop on the Blue Line or walk between stations. Program organizers will have guides near exits to Metro stations directing people to the performance locations. Audio description and interpretation will be provided for the Sunday performances.

Tickets are $25 for the performances on Saturday and pay-what-you-will on Sunday. Children of all ages are welcome to attend. To find more routes and connections to the event, use Trip Planner.
