I am SO excited to be taking my daughter to see Caps for Sale! Caps for Sale is a part of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's 2015-2016 Citizens Bank Children’s Theater Series. This Adventure Theater MTC production will mark the 75th Anniversary of the book with performances taking place from November 15 through 22, 2015 at six locations throughout the Pittsburgh region.
The Adventure Theater MTC musical, Caps for Sale, is based on the children’s book by Esphyr Slobodkina. The cast of six (6) Washington, DC based professional actors will amaze you while playing eleven (11) roles, including a band of monkeys and a new character based on the author of the book and her cat, Scaramouche. The musical score, by Carnegie Mellon Graduate, Bill Yanesh, will have you singing and dancing. Michael J. Bobbitt (Playwright - Three Little Birds), co-writes the musical with Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer, lifelong friend of Esphyr Slobodkina. Director, Patrick Pearson, of the world famous Ford’s Theatre, leads a team of award winning DC area designers, to bring you the story of the Peddler and his funny Monkey friends to life. Celebrate the 75th Anniversary with the world premiere new musical.
Recommended for ages 3 to 10, this musical is a wonderful educational experience that is sure to enchant the entire family. The peddler has a huge stack of caps, balanced carefully on top of his head. Brown caps, blue caps, gray caps, and red caps. But no one wants to buy a cap. So he goes for a walk in the country, and takes a nap under a shady tree. When he wakes up, the caps are gone — all except his own checked one. Where could his caps have disappeared to? And how will he ever get them back? Journey along with the peddler in his quest to find the mysteriously missing caps as the 60 minute presentation celebrates the 75th Anniversary of this favorite book.
