POLKADOTS: THE COOL KID MUSICAL JV
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.
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.

What is the difference between an individual ticket and a family ticket?
You only need to purchase one ticket per device. That said, if you have more than one viewer watching on a single device, we encourage you to choose the family ticket. If you have a large group watching together on one ticket/access code, you are welcome to donate the cost of a ticket to our scholarship fund (link below).
Our priority has always been to be as accessible and inclusive as possible and in these trying times, this mission has only grown stronger. Our scholarship fund allows us to offer opportunities to young performers who may otherwise not have access to the arts.
