SCERA’s Theatre for Young Audiences presents one-hour musicals and plays based on children’s literature. The shows are performed by a cast of adult actors, and are the perfect way to introduce children to the magic of live theatre. And parents…with a witty script, charming characters and catchy music, you’ll have a great time, too!
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.

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. Directed by DeLayne Bluth Dayton.
