About

A world premiere Kennedy Center co-commission
and co-production with the White House Historical Association  
Book and lyrics by KAREN ZACAR√ćAS  
Music by DEBORAH WICKS LA PUMA  
Directed by JOHN VREEKE  

Field trips are fun, especially when your destination is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! In this charming new musical, written in part with D.C. students and Young Playwrights' Theater, Dee Dee, Jose, and Annie accidentally knock George Washington out of his portrait and into real life--turning their tour into an unexpected adventure. As they try to get the nation's first President back into his painting, the threesome encounters other famous White House residents, including Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd, Dolley Madison, and Jackie Kennedy. Together, they learn that the White House isn't just a historic building... it's also a home. For ages 9 and up.
