DOT DOT DOT: A New Musical

by TheaterWorksUSA

Grades 1-4

Celebrate the power of originality, self-expression, and thwarting expectations in this exciting new musical based on the award-winning picture books by  New York Times bestselling author Peter H. Reynolds: The Dot, Ish, and Sky Color. When Marisol, a young artist and curator of the Musee de Marisol, decides that her gallery requires more than her own art, her search for emerging talent leads her to Vashti whose dots inspire Ramon to become an artist in his own right. Follow Marisol’s journey to help her new friends—and her entire community—break free from self-criticism and learn to let their imaginations soar.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden with our Art Talks program!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.

Sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
