The Secret of the Soap and Spin | Kids Out and About Austin

The Secret of the Soap and Spin

Are there really secrets lurking in the dusty corners of the local laundromat? Melanie is a second grader who lives two apartments away from Victor, a fourth grader. They play together a lot — especially on laundry day. But when they meet a mysterious fifth grader named Annie, she challenges them to find out if the rumors are true: is the old, broken down blue dryer in the back of the local laundromat really a portal to another world? The trio goes on journey to see what they can discover about some people who have gone missing — including Victor's mother — without getting caught by “The Broom”, the grumpy, old guy who runs the laundromat. Everyone knows you can’t get inside a dryer, but no one knows what might come out of one! Graham’s newest play for Pollyanna Theatre is an imaginative and poignant story about children bravely coaching each other through the difficult (and sometimes soapy) waters of growing up. This play is intended for children grades 2 - 5.

for children ages 2-4.


By Sandy Asher, based upon her award-winning book.
