Polkadots follows 8-year-old Lily, who just moved to the “Squares Only” 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 Nine, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.

New policies go into effect on April 1, 2022 - Education

COVID-19 Policies for Ordway School Performances.

Given the improvement in COVID-19 positivity rates and cases in our community, beginning on April the Arts Partners will no longer require proof of vaccination or negative COVID test results in order to attend performances at the Ordway. Masks will also no longer be required, but will be welcomed and encouraged.

These changes will take effect at the Ordway on April 1, 2022, barring a change in the current environment or risk category. The Arts Partners will continue to evaluate the latest guidance from the CDC, MDH, and its medical advisors and will adjust its health and safety policies accordingly.
