Ambitious, Great music, Resonant, Simple

See it if you're looking for a fun show to bring small children to that encourages acceptance of all people.

Don't see it if you're expecting to grapple with all the nuance of what happened with the Little Rock 9.

"A colorful allegory set to rousing tunes, 'Polkadots' gives kids a look at not just bullying and inclusion, but more specifically segregation...The subject matter is heavy but important, and while most of the score is clever and catchy, perfect for the grade school set, some songs fall hard on the kids...The company of four throw themselves into their roles with a vigor (read slight overacting)...'Polkadots' is fun, vibrant and energetic, but it is also important."

"When the topic of discrimination comes up (if it hasn't already), don't bother trying to define it. Just take your children to 'Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical'...The 55-minute performance takes a complicated topic and puts it through a kid-friendly lens—without dumbing it down or simplifying it too much...The musical numbers are all-out infectious. It's a small cast: only four actors, and all of them absolutely shine on the stage...The social message is the icing on the cake with this one."
