Enrollment Show Class

Flat Stanley Jr.

Ages 8-16

Instructors: Tucker Tasker, Kaili Doeden
 

The beloved children's book written by Jeff Brown is a literary and pop culture phenomenon.  Filled with infectious songs and non-stop adventure, Flat Stanley JR. is a perfect show to introduce young performers to the magic of live theatre.
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday ten-year-old until the bulletin board above his bed falls 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 cancelled 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 to many interesting locales, filled with lots of colorful characters, which make for great casting opportunities.

Enrollment Show Classes are designed to give a taste of what productions are like! Acting, singing, and choreography are experienced weekly. Parents are encouraged to get involved with sets, costumes, or any number of departments that bring a show together. Students enrolled in the class are automatically cast in the show.
