The Smartest Girl in the World
Tuesday, April 3 | at 7 p.m. | Austin Playhouse at ACC Highland, 6001 Airport Blvd.
Austin Playhouse Spring Theatre for Youth Production kicks off with Miriam Gonzales’s The Smartest Girl in the World. This heartwarming and witty play tells the story of studious Leo Martinez and his younger sister Lizzy, two latch-key children of hardworking parents. Leo is convinced that winning a local TV quiz show and becoming “the smartest kid in the world” can create a better life for his family. When Mami and Papi refuse to let Leo participate due to his chronic illness, Lizzy studies up to compete in his place. Along the way, Leo and Lizzy discover that there are many ways to be smart—and that different people are smart in different ways. The Smartest Girl in the World will have public performances on Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 7 and 14 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. In addition to public performances, The Smartest Girl in the World is also available for schools and camps throughout Central Texas and is targeted to children grades 2 – 6, but is appropriate for the whole family.
