Trick or Treat with Stephen Schwartz's CAPTAIN LOUIE and CAPTAIN LOUIE JR.

License the rights to perform Captain Louie JR. from Music Theatre InternationalBeing the new kid is tough.  You've got a new neighborhood to navigate, a new house filled with other people's memories, and worst of all, a new school where you're supposed to make new friends.  What if they watch different TV shows or play different games?  What if you accidentally sit with the wrong people at lunch?  What if everyone makes fun of you?

It's these fears that keep Louie on the sidelines on Halloween, as he watches his new classmates play.  In CAPTAIN LOUIE and CAPTAIN LOUIE JR., the musical by multiple Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, GODSPELL) and Anthony Stein, Louie embarks on an imaginary journey to his old neighborhood-where he and his old friends first tease, then welcome Julio, who moved into Louie's old house.  After a magical night of Trick-Or-Treating, Louie returns to his new home with newfound confidence, ready to prove that "new kid" is just another way of saying "new friend."

October is the perfect time to highlight this "treat" of a show, so we hope you'll check out the videos and interactive links below.

What’s So Special About MTI’s Broadway Junior Collection?

The Broadway Junior Collection features 60-minute adaptations of classic and contemporary musicals for middle-school-aged children to perform in classroom and after-school settings. The story of Louie’s move to a new neighborhood spoke to middle school-aged students in its original form, and CAPTAIN LOUIE JR. gives these same-aged students the chance to perform the show themselves.  The issues in the show, especially the fears of being a new kid, are ones most students can relate to, and the writing captures the voice of that age group without talking down to them.  With CAPTAIN LOUIE JR., your students can depict characters that are just like them - and they’ll learn lessons that directly affect their lives.
