About the show

The New Victory Theater presents Adventure Theatre MTC's new musical based on a children's book, this treasured tale bursts with happy harmonies, merry melodies and quite a bit of monkey business. More…

“Caps! Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap!” The peddler has 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?

MD Theatre Guide

for a previous production "Easily captivates children and adults alike, weaving together multiple theatrical elements that are each solid and entertaining...'Caps For Sale: The Musical' fills its hour-long runtime with catchy songs, sweet life lessons and laughter. It amazes me again with the amount of talent they attract, and my tween daughter and I are so thrilled that we have access to their amazing shows." Full Review


for a previous production "Just like the book, 'Caps For Sale - The Musical,' will leave audiences of all ages with wide grins and wanting more...While the quality of the composition and vocals was good, the sound design seemed to lack a steady balance between the instrumentals and the actor's and actresses voices...Overall, the show will provide an entertaining morning or afternoon for the entire family with its combination of nostalgia and fresh twists." Full Review

DC Theatre Scene

for a previous production "The thrust stage is small but adequate for the six member cast, and the choreography, while cramped at times, is lively and varied enough from song to song that it doesn’t feel repetitive, as musicals with a small cast can sometimes feel...Overall it’s nicely paced, but it’s frankly a bit overlong for the teeny-weenies towards the end. No doubt several smaller scenes could be reasonably cut with no loss of narrative." Full Review

DC Metro Theater Arts

for a previous production "The original story is so popular because of its simplicity, but the new details that are added to beef up the stage version are cute and logical...Director Patrick Pearson does well in setting a highly energetic and kooky pace, without letting it turn over-the-top."
