Theatre444 Starts 'Polkadots' Week
GENEVA -- Theatre444, a local theater group, Sunday morning practicing for next weekend's musical presentation of Polkadots, The Cool Kids Musical at the Pat Collins Black Box Theater in the Geneva Community Center.
The Boys & Girls Club of Geneva is proud to host this production Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical which 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 an unexpected pal-ship. Inspired by the events of The Little Rock 9, Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
Theatre444 will offer four opportunities to see this show with evening productions Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and 2 p.m. matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday. The Pat Collins Theater is located within the Geneva Community Center at 160 Carter Road.
