Based on the historical events of the Little Rock Nine, Polkadots tells the story of Lily Polkadot just as she has relocated to the “Squares Only” small town of Rockaway. As the first Polkadot to attend the school, Lily is faced with the distaste of Penelope Square and the realization that she will have to drink from a new “polkadot pump” instead of the “square sprinkler.” This insightful and exciting musical helps children understand the history of racial tension in America from a creative and unique perspective. The Palace is pleased to present this dynamic new musical as part of our Black History Month offerings in February.
Produced by Park Playhouse & The Palace Performing Arts Center
