The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley

Based on Jeff Brown’s bestselling children’s book, this musical tells the story of Stanley Lambchop, a normal boy who is just like everyone else. That’s the problem. For Stanley, life is too normal. Determined to do something amazing, something no one’s ever seen before, he makes a wish on a falling star. The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat … really, really flat! Thus begins his new life and an unexpected quest to see the world, which becomes surprisingly easy when you can travel through the mail as a letter!

The Ant and the Grasshopper

A super industrious Ant has opened a branch ant hole when a fun loving Grasshopper moves in next door. Ant resists Grasshopper’s offers to join him and his friends for some fun and games. Instead, Ant diligently prepares for winter, while Grasshopper doesn’t believe in winter despite Ant’s warnings. But winter comes; and Grasshopper, who has no food or shelter and Ant, who has no friends and never had any fun, discover there is more to life than they thought.
