POLKADOTS: The Cool Kids Musical

Book by Melvin Tunstall III, Music by Greg Borowsky and Douglas Lyons, Lyrics by Douglas Lyons
Based on an original concept by Douglas Lyons

This delightful musical combines catchy songs, the humor of a Pixar film and a valuable message about diversity and acceptance into entertaining family fun for ages 4 and up! When 8-year-old Lily moves to a new town, she faces the challenge of being the first Polkadot in an all Square school. Overcoming her obstacles, she challenges the minds and hearts of her peers showing everyone that our differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
