On Sunday, January 27 at 3 p.m., the Rosen PAC at the Wayne YMCA presents “Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical!” The show 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. Lily’s story teaches us all that uniqueness should be celebrated.
Tickets can be purchased online at metroymcas.org. There will be a character meet and greet after the show. For more information, call (973) 595-0100. The Wayne YMCA is at 1 Pike Drive.
