12:07 PM 2012


Let your imagination take flight on a wild and magical adventure with Captain Louie at the Roxy Regional Theatre, beginning Friday, June 22, at 6 p.m.

When his family moves to a new neighborhood, young Louie has to leave his friends behind. Lonely and looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween Night, Louie returns to his old neighborhood friends in an imaginary journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane. 
A celebration of creativity and the power of the imagination, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.  Set to the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz, this endearing show is guaranteed to entertain both the young and old alike.
Starring Sean Ormond as Louie, Captain Louie is directed by John McDonald with musical direction by Tom Thayer and features Hannah Church, Regan Featherstone, Humberto Figueroa, Erin Keas, Rob Rodems and Amy Wyer.
CAPTAIN-LOUIE-Takes-To-The-Roxy-Regional-Theatre-Stage-on-622-20010101This family-friendly musical is based on the beloved children's story The Trip by Ezra Jack Keats, who wrote and illustrated more than two dozen children's books during his lifetime, including the Caldecott Medal award-winning The Snowy Day. The child of struggling immigrant parents in the 1920s, Keats was known for populating his books with characters of different ethnicities, introducing multiculturalism into mainstream American children's literature.
Captain Louie runs June 22 through July 7, playing Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. There is no performance on Wednesday, July 4. Tickets are $20 (adults) and $15 (ages 13 and under) and are available at, by phone at (931) 645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday).
