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 for a medium-sized cast, though Louie’s old neighborhood can encompass additional cast members as needed. As the majority of Louie’s journey takes place on his imaginary journey, set design and costume options abound!
