The Cool Kids Gala

Calling All Cool Kids! Join us at the John Waldron Arts Center for games and festivities before the afternoon performance of Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical. After the show, you will have the opportunity to meet the cast and dine on some scrumptious cuisine. The COOLEST kids will dress up for the event, either fancy or zany, in order to win a prize for “best dressed” or “funniest threads.” This family-friendly “gala” is a benefit to support Constellation’s education and accessibility programs, ensuring that Constellation remains a pillar of arts education and theater for young audiences in south central Indiana.

Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical

On stage April 25 – May 11 at the Waldron Arts Center

8-year-old Lily Polkadot just moved to the small, “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. Lily’s quest seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected friendship. Inspired by the events of The Little Rock 9, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson, reminding us that our individual differences are what make us cool. Click here to learn more about the show!
