StarStruck Theatre presents 'The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr.'
Submitted By Helen Chang
Bursting from the popular children's books, "The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr." comes to life April 13-15 at Irvington High School's Valhalla Theatre in Fremont. When adventure-hungry Stanley Lambchop suddenly finds himself flattened, he discovers how to use his new two-dimensional state for globetrotting adventures. Filled with lively and funny songs, this StarStruck Youth Theatre production features a cast ages 9-14. Funny, colorful, and engaging, "Flat Stanley" is the perfect show to introduce very young children to the wonderful world of theatre.
Directors Lori Stokes and Danny Harper, along with musical director Daniel Pias, lead an all-kid cast of 30 for this tuneful romp through Stanley's adventures. Many children have loved the "Flat Stanley" books for decades, and in recent years, the online Flat Stanley Project has connected children as young as six with other kids in other parts of the world by exchanging "flat selves" through the mail. Now, for the first time in this area, this beloved tale comes to life to amaze and delight children of all ages.
There are four performances during the weekend of April 13 - 15, all at times convenient to bring very young children: Friday, April 13 at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 14 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. Find and color the picture of Stanley in the pages of the Tri-City Voice and bring it to one of the shows in exchange for a raffle ticket to win fun prizes.
The show runs for one and a half hours, including an intermission. Tickets for children are $10; adult tickets are $18. "The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr." will be performed at Irvington High School's Valhalla Theatre, which is a new, additional location for StarStruck performances. To order tickets for this one-weekend only musical, visit www.starstrucktheatre.org, or call the StarStruck box office at (510) 659-1319.
