Playhouse on Park presents Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical!
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.
Inspired by Civil Rights pioneers Ruby Bridges and The Little Rock Nine, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for the world, reminding us that our differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
Performances are May 12th, 13th, 19th, and 20th at 1PM and 4PM, and May 16th at 10AM and 2:30 PM. There are 2 sensory friendly shows playing on May 19th and 20th at 10AM.
Tickets are $16 for children/seniors and $18 for adult tickets. For more information, please call the box office at (860) 523-5900 ex. 10 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
