1.3 - Mill Mountain Theatre's Polkdots Team » Theatre for reflection, conversation and inspiration

Mill Mountain Theatre is going digital for their summer community outreach performances. Instead of parks, neighborhood centers, and community spaces, the program will be available from Broadway on Demand from September 15 through October 9. 

In this episode we talk with Director and Choreographer Christopher Castanho, and cast members of Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical --
Alexia Buckner (Lily), Achilles Mulkey (Sky) and Madeline Walker (Ms. Square). What's it like for the young professionals undertaking the creative work amidst COVID-19? What do they look to for inspiration? Find out in this episode of the podcast.

Polkadots is based on the story of the Little Rock Nine and fictionalizes important lessons from our past as the nation struggled to break through policies of segregation. The performance film will be available for viewing from September 15 through October 9. While the musical was written for elementary-age students, it will appeal to the whole family.
