BSA Children’s Theatre to present musical

BELLEVUE — Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Children’s Theatre is to present “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr.,” at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 16 and 17, and at 2 p.m., Aug. 18, in the Hirt Theater at 205 Maple St.

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.

Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday 10-year-old until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley 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, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.

Stanley’s journey takes him all across the globe, to many interesting locales, filled with lots of colorful characters.
