About This Show

A new musical for children based on the works of Ezra Jack Keats, author of the Caldecott winning A Snowy Day and A Whistle for Willie, Captain Louie has a score by Stephen Schwartz, who brought us Godspell, Pippin, Wicked, and three Oscar-winning family musicals, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Prince of Egypt.

Based on the book, The Trip, Captain Louie is about a young boy who is lonely and sad because he hasn’t yet found any friends in his new neighborhood. Looking for something to cheer him up, he returns to his old neighborhood friends in an imaginative journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane. During the play, we see the plane go from toy size to Louie size to large enough to take Louie and all his friends on a flight over the sparkling lights of the City.
