by Austin Playhouse
Lyric is a second-grader who is having trouble learning to read when an unlikely teacher, the janitor at her school, recognizes the challenges she is facing. Mr. Hartley elicits the help of his made-from-junk creations to nurture within Lyric the necessary confidence and learning strategies to read. KEYS is a new musical celebrating what it means for young people to believe in themselves enough to do anything – even learning to read!
The key has always been inside!
