The story revolves around 13 year old Casey who loves numbers. Early on, he shares his favorite numbers: Three, Zero and Seven but realizes some interesting contrasts with the number One. If he was number One would he fit in or would he just continue to be lonely? Casey experiences a range of emotions throughout the story as he dances with stars, fireflies, mad scientists, and trees and ends up alone trapped in a cave. Casey learns a valuable lesson about the world in The Boy Who Wanted to Count. The role of Casey is danced by Erik Osterkil, son of Susan Penrod and Al Osterkil.
