(ST CHARLES) Vero Voce School of Performing Arts in St Charles has been rehearsing its troop of young actors over the last six weeks for its first children’s musical theatre production of the 2013-24 Season. The musical is being directed by David Rodriguez, Theater Instructor of Vero Voce, Vocal Directed by Dawn Harkins, owner and voice instructor of Vero Voce, Choreographed by Whitney Smith, and produced by Dennis Brown.
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 in THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY JR.
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! The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat...really, REALLY flat! I n 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 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 musical will be presented on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm, August 2-11, 2013 in the Vero Voce Theater, 951 State Ave., Ste F, St. Charles, IL 60174.
