“Everybody is a genius . But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein.” Sixth-grader, Ally, has been clever in covering up her inability to read. She feels her problem is hopeless because how can you cure dumb? Her newest teacher, Mr. Daniels, however, sees the bright and creative kid she hides and helps Ally see that her dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. This emotionally-charged and uplifting story highlights that everyone is more than a label and great minds don’t always think alike. Our world premiere adaptation is brought to life in our JC Studio this fall.
RUN TIME: Approximately 90 MINUTES with no intermission.
