CAPTAIN LOUIE JR., based on the book "The Trip" by Ezra Jack Keats with music by Stephen Schwartz, spins a tale of Young Louie, the new kid in town who feels lonely and without friends in his new neighborhood. 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.
The story is full of tricks and treats, as well as the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz. Most of all, CAPTAIN LOUIE is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones. CAPTAIN LOUIE calls for a medium size cast, with plenty of set design and costume options.
