ABOUT THE SHOW:  The new kid in town takes to the sky in this charming tale of imagination. Based on the children’s book The Trip by Ezra Jack Keats, and featuring a musical score by Grammy Award-winning composer, Stephen Schwartz, Captain Louie is about friendships old and new.  Louie has just moved to a new town and is nervous to make friends. Alone in his room, he takes flight in his daydreams back to his old neighborhood, where he spends Halloween with his colorful crew of chums. Over the course of trick-or-treating and being introduced to the new kid in his old neighborhood, Louie discovers that making a fresh start is nothing to be afraid of.
