Everyday from May 21, 2021 - Jun 13, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The shows run virtually, May 21 to June 13. For showtimes, visit the website. Leo and Lizzy Martinez want to be the smartest kids in the world and they have a plan. The children of hardworking immigrants, big brother Leo has convinced his little sister that being smart is the key to helping their family escape a tough, uncertain reality. The first step in the plan? Leo will win the local TV kids’ quiz show. But when their parents refuse to let him join the quiz team, Lizzy learns there’s something deeper driving Leo - something that makes life that much more challenging and unpredictable for her brother and her family. Seeing her brother’s spirit broken, Lizzy is determined to grow up, give up her dreams, and rescue the plan to see it through. Along the way, she and Leo discover it takes more than being serious and smart to save a family and one another. Rated ages 6+. To purchase tickets, visit the website.
