The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley
Stanley Lambchop is just like everyone else. That’s the problem. For Stanley, life is TOO normal. Determined to do something amazing, something no one’s ever seen before, he makes a wish on a falling star. That night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley’s bed comes loose and falls- right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat… really, really flat! Thus begins his new life and an unexpected quest to see the world, which comes surprisingly easy when you can travel through the mail as a letter! Along the way, Stanley thwarts a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris and surfs off the coast of Hawaii. He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood to France to Honolulu and beyond. Once Stanley realizes that great adventures aren’t as special without his family around to share in the joy and excitement, he wishes to become a three-dimensional boy once again and learns that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, Jeff Brown’s beloved children’s book, “Flat Stanley,” was written in 1964 and has become a literary and pop cultural phenomenon. The musical stage adaption has followed in its footsteps receiving national critical acclaim. “What I love about the show are all the teachable moments that don’t feel like lessons,” says DCT’s guest director Michael Serrecchia. “It’s a fun, Broadway-style musical comedy about the value of being different ad the importance of family.”Enjoyed by ages 5 and up.
