Available on our website is a 360 degree tour of the theatre as well as photos of all of our spaces at Polka to also better prepare you for your visit.A little bit of blurb about the shows.....23 Sep – 29 Oct 2011Polka Theatre presents ‘I Have a Dream...’By Levi David AddaiTake a leap into the past in this time-travelling adventureAugust 1963, USA: Martin Luther King prepares to deliver a speech that will change the course of American history forever.
