POLKADOTS: The Cool Kids Musical


BOOK BY Melvin Turnstall III
MUSIC BY Greg Borowsky & Douglas Lyons
LYRICS BY Douglas Lyons
ORIGINAL CONCEPT BY Douglas Lyons


Playhouse on Park’s first ever touring production!

Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical 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 the events of The Little Rock 9, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
