The Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) presents Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical written by Melvin Tunstall III with music by Greg Borowsky & Douglas Lyons and lyrics by Douglas Lyons.
The LDTC’s 2019 season includes a Family Series and features Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical, which follows 8-year-old Lily Polkadot who just moved to the “Squares Only” small town Rockaway. As the first Polkadot in an all Square school, Lily faces an almost impossible task of gaining acceptance from her peers.
Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical explores the idea of being a cool kid by asking what is a “Cool Kid”?
The cast told the LDTC what they think being a cool kid means, “Being a cool kid means being someone that embraces who they are and treats others with the same respect that they want to be treated with.” Said Sofie Flores who plays Mamma Square & Gabby Square.
The Polkadots cast features Cindy Tsai as Lily Polkadot, Alexa Hendrickson as Mrs. Square, Yael Eden Chanukov as Penelope Square, Caleb Warren as Sky Square, Sofie Flores as Mamma Square and Gabby Square, and Corey Barrow as Henry Square.
Directing Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical is Colt Neidhardt who serves as Director of Education and Community Outreach at LDTC. Polkadots production staff features musical director Michael Meketa, scenic design by Ben Whitmore, sound design by Stefanie M. Senior, lighting design by Cory Sprinkles, costume design by Jill Parzych, props master Emily Dinkel, and is stage managed by Shannon Sullivan.
