“’Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical’ follows 8-year-old Lily Polkadot, who just moved to the ‘Squares Only’ small town of Rockaway,” a theatre news release states. “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 polka-dot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship.”
