Stanley Lambchop is just like everyone else. That's the problem. For Stanley, life is TOO normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one's ever seen before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley! One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley's bed comes loose and falls - right on top of Stanley! The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat...really, REALLY flat! In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley - the ultimate exchange student - explores the globe and learns that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

Directed by Broadway veteran Michael Serrechia, this production celebrates the book's 50th anniversary, bringing Flat Stanley to life as a charming musical with a delightful score. This "Broadway-like" performance is available as an hour-long show for school audiences or with an intermission for public audiences.
