Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical

This regional premiere opens in February

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.

On Saturday, March 24, we are proud to welcome Ms. Carlotta Walls LaNier to TCT for a very special Q&A and talkback after the 5 PM performance of POLKADOTS: THE COOL KIDS MUSICAL.  In 1957, at age 14, Ms. Walls LaNier was the youngest Little Rock Nine member to integrate Central High School.  This act of courage and defiance became the catalyst for change in the American educational system.  By ushering in a new order, she and her fellow warriors became ‘foot soldiers’ for freedom.  Tickets for this special event will be $30 and are on sale now.
