October 12-28, 2018
Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical (Arizona Premiere) is a new musical inspired by the true events of Civil Rights pioneers, Ruby Bridges and The Little Rock Nine and written by Broadway actor Douglas Lyons, Melvin Tunstall III, and Greg Borowsky.
Polkadots follows 8-year-old Lily Polkadot who just moved to the Squares Only small town of Rockaway. As the first Polkadot in an all Square school, Lily faces an almost impossible task of gaining acceptance from her peers. From daily bullying, to segregated drinking fountains, Lily’s quest seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship. Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
