"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 anunexpected 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."

On February 28th, Reggio had the pleasure of hosting Playhouse On Park Theatre’s Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical. Each show was filled with vibrant performances, catchy songs and an important message about diversity and inclusion. Students even had a question and answer time following each performance. Thank you to the wonderful cast and crew for bringing this special show to our student body.
