Flat Stanley verticalHaven't gotten your tickets to 
"The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley?"

There are still lots of great seats available for the Friday morning show, July 12th!
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, every day ten-year-old who wants to travel the world. Stanley wakes up flat and in a whirlwind musical travelogue! He's stamped, posted and canceled from Hollywood to France to Honolulu and beyond. And whether he's thwarting a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or 'hanging ten' off the coast of Hawaii, Stanley is closing in on his goal of being a three-dimensional boy once more! Great music and a funny story that will delight all!
