Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical

Friday, March 22, 2024 @ 7:00 pm

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.

Share the Magic

Share the magic of live theatre with young audiences. Family Fare offers great titles to form great experiences. Make a tradition and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Fare presents quality theatrical programming for children. Performances are held in Wright Performing Arts Center on Friday nights at 7:00 pm. Events last about an hour and are suitable for individuals with an appropriate attention span. Many children are ready for live theatre as young as age four. Our titles are generally appropriate for all ages, but parents are encouraged to anticipate family discussions that may ensue as a result of the presented material.
