License the rights to perform FLAT STANLEY JR. from Music Theatre InternationalFlat Stanley, the beloved children's book written by Jeff Brown in 1964 has become a literary and pop cultural phenomenon - delighting readers and travelers all around the world.  And now, MTI has taken everyone's favorite two-dimensional hero and given him a new life on the stage.  THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY JR. - the newest addition to the MTI Broadway Junior Collection is now available for licensing.  This means, you can bring the entire Lambchop family to YOUR stage!
Who is Stanley Lambchop?
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, every day, 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!

One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley's bed comes loose and falls. Right on top of Stanley! And the next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat...really, REALLY flat! At first it's not so bad. He can slide under locked doors, roll up like a mat, become a trampoline. His friends fly him like a kite. And Stanley's the best in his class at hide-and-seek: He just turns to the side and virtually disappears. But he can't stay flat forever - someone has to do something. And that someone in Stanley! Stanley puts himself in a big envelope and travels the world - a human letter.

And the adventure begins!

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 canceled 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.
The Songs
Tunes like "I Wish I Was a Hero" feature a slew of fun pop-culture references from  "Harry Potter" to "Star Wars", making the show accessible and fun for younger performers.
