Onstage at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn from July 12 – August 11.
Polkadots follows 8-year-old Lily Polkadot, the first Polkadot to attend the school in the “Squares Only” small town of Rockaway. However, Lily, along with her new friend Sky, a shy Square boy who appreciates her for her unique polkadot skin, prove that our individual differences do not make us weird or wrong, they make us awesome. Polkadots will be onstage at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn, 1601 Willow Lawn Drive, Richmond, Virginia 23230.
