at the Kauffman Center January 18-20 and Ticket Giveaway
The beloved children's book, Flat Stanley, comes to life when Starlight Children’s Theatre presents The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, January 18-20 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, 1601 Broadway. Keep reading for a chance to win 4 tickets!
The musical comedy is the story of Stanley Lambchop who becomes flattened when his bulletin board above his bed falls on top of him while he is sleeping. In a whirlwind travelogue, Stanley - the ultimate exchange student - scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He's stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood to 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.
“Starlight Children’s Theatre and the creative team of Flat Stanley have assembled an A-list cast, full of Kansas City's favorite musical theatre performers,” said Andy Parkhurst, co-director and choreographer. “Cathy Barnett and Tom Lancaster are two of our city's finest comedians, and Katie Karel, Phillip Russell Newman and Alex Herrera represent our most celebrated young performers. With production values that are only possible with Starlight Theatre and the Kauffman Center, this production is equally enjoyable for adults and kids.”
“For many young audience members, Starlight Children's Theatre at the Kauffman Center provides a first-ever experience of seeing a live stage show,” Parkhurst said. “Having performed for Starlight Theatre as a 13- and 14-year- old, then returning as a New York actor to inaugurate the 2000 renovations, it is wonderfully full circle directing for Starlight Children's Theatre. The Kauffman Center has helped put Kansas City on the international map as a true arts city, and it's an honor to work with both organizations.”
ABOUT FLAT STANLEY
Jeff Brown created the beloved character of Flat Stanley as a bedtime story for his children. He went on to write five more books about the boy who became flattened overnight and then traveled the world. Today, the Flat Stanley Project is one of the most-recognized and best-loved literacy and geography curriculums. It is meant to facilitate letter-writing by schoolchildren to each other as they document where Flat Stanley has accompanied them. This multi-generational global activity engages hundreds of thousands of children on a daily basis in classrooms around the world. For more information, visit www.flatstanley.com.
