Caps for Sale

  • 2519 Northwestern Ave
  • Racine, WI

A peddler gets into some monkey business during the Racine Children’s Theatre (RCT) production of “Caps for Sale” Friday, February 2 through Sunday, February 4.

Adapted from the classic tale by Esphyr Slobodkina, “Caps for Sale” is the story of a cap peddler’s life, some monkeys, and their monkey business. The peddler has always been successful in selling his caps by stacking them on his top of his head, so he can shake the hand of anyone he meets.

When his cap sales hit a slump, a clever monkey offers to help him come up with a business plan. The peddler will not listen until the mischievous monkey steals his caps and they find a way to work together. Filled with humor, songs, audience participation, and fun, the monkeys and the peddler teach us all a little something about perseverance and determination.
