In preparation for their spring production, the Elizabeth Davis Middle School Theatre Department gave a sneak performance of their next production to the first and second grade classes at Elizabeth Scott Elementary. Last Friday, the children watched closely and enjoyed over 25 middle school students dressed in black perform “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr.”
Most children are familiar with Flat Stanley from reading the children’s book by Jeff Brown. The book, written in 1964, has become a literary and pop cultural phenomenon, delighting readers and travelers all around the world. Musical Theatre International, Inc. (MTI) has taken everyone’s favorite two-dimensional hero and given him a new life on the stage.
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old, normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. That’s just 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!
Find out how Stanley becomes Flat Stanley and how he scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem.

The Wednesday and Saturday performances are at 3 p.m. with the Thursday and Friday performances at 7 p.m. Tickets are $4 for advance sales and $5 day of show.
