Civic Youth Theatre Musical

The story 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. Inspired by events on the 'The Little Rock 9,' Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.

"A colorful allegory set to rousing tunes, 'Polkadots' gives kids a look at not just bullying and inclusion." -Show-Score.com
