Emelin Theatre will present TheatreWork USA's production of DOT DOT DOT: A New Musical, based on the Creatrilogy trio of award-winning picture books by The New York Times bestselling author Peter H. Reynolds.

The musical, adapted by composers Keelay Gipson and Sam Salmond, will be presented for two matinee performances on Saturday, March 16, 2024.

DOT DOT DOT is a celebration of the power of originality, self-expression, and the importance of looking beyond the expected. The production brings to life the beloved characters from Reynolds' acclaimed books – The Dot, Ish, and Sky Color. Adapted for the stage, the musical follows the journey of Marisol, a young artist and curator of the Musee de Marisol, as she embarks on a quest for emerging talent to enrich her gallery.

Marisol's search leads her to Vashti (The Dot), whose dots inspire Ramon (Ish) to become an artist in his own right. The musical unfolds Marisol's mission to help her new friends and her entire community break free from self-criticism, encouraging them to let their imaginations soar. Recommended for ages 5-9
