The new kid in town takes to the sky in Stephen Schwartz' charming tale of imagination and fresh starts. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS) CAPTAIN LOUIE JR., based on the popular
picture 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 friendless after his family moves to a new neighborhood.
Looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween, Louie takes an
imaginary journey to visit his old neighborhood friends on the wings of
his favorite toy, his little red plane.
The story of
little Captain Louie is full of tricks and treats, as well as the
incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz. Most of all,
CAPTAIN LOUIE JR. is about friendship – the
ability to make new friends as well as the importance of old ones.
CAPTAIN LOUIE JR. calls

additional cast members as needed. As the majority of Louie’s journey
takes place on his imaginary journey, set design and costume options
