The Springfield Little Theatre Education Department is excited to present THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY, JR. in its 2023-2024 Education Series! Based on the best-selling book series, Stanley folds his way around the world with his flat-tastic hijinks.

The beloved children’s book written by Jeff Brown is a literary and pop culture phenomenon, delighting readers all around the world. And now, everyone’s favorite two-dimensional hero has a new life in THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY, JR. 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.
