Submitted image

West Hartford’s Playhouse on Park will present ‘The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley’ from May 31-June 9.


The next show in Playhouse on Park‘s Young Audience Series is The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, running May 31-June 9.

Based on the best-selling book series, Stanley folds his way around the world with his flat-tastic hijinks.

Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill, 10-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. But Stanley wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one’s ever seen before.

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! 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. 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.
