Remember Flat Stanley? Either Way, This Production Is Marvelous for the Kiddos

The beloved children's book written by Jeff Brown, Flat Stanley, is a literary and pop culture phenomenon, delighting readers around the world. And now, everyone's favorite two-dimensional hero has a new life in The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley. Filled with infectious songs and non-stop adventure, Flat Stanley is a perfect show to introduce young performers to the magic of live theatre, and it’s coming to the Midtown Arts and Theatre Center Houston on Monday, March 16th.

During the play, you’ll learn the story of Stanley Lambchop, who is an ordinary, everyday ten-year-old until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley wakes up flat. In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley — the ultimate exchange student — scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He's stamped, posted and canceled from Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.

Stanley’s journey takes him all across the globe, to many interesting locales, filled with lots of colorful characters, which make for great casting opportunities. Don’t miss out on your chance to catch The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley when it plays at Midtown Arts and Theatre Center Houston March 16th to April 4th!
