Our production of Captain Louie, sponsored by the Wells Fargo Foundation, was a grand success! 2,400 children from Beaumont to Coachella were treated to free admission and transportation to the Annenberg Theater to see special performances of Captain Louie during its week of production. Their reaction to seeing a musical theater production was GREAT! We had a Q & A after each performance and the majority of the children were seeing a live performance for the very first time. It was very rewarding for the whole company.
