A new play with music that celebrates and explores neurodiversity, friendship, the harm bullying causes, the life changing potential of a generous teacher and the power of imagination. Ally is a smart girl with a big imagination but she often causes distractions that get her in trouble in class. She doubts her intelligence due to her dyslexia until a teacher helps her unlock her inner potential. Soon she discovers that great minds don’t always think alike!

Adapted by Barbara Zinn Krieger from the best-selling novel by Lynda Mullaly Hunt, this new play with music for young audiences, directed by Sammy Lopez and Melissa Jessel, uses live video technology, dance and music to explore Ally’s journey with dyslexia.
