Flat 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, everyone’s favorite two-dimensional hero has a new life on the stage.

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! 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 Washington D.C. to France to Honolulu and beyond. And whether he’s rapping with the Declaration of Independence, 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.

Pied Piper Players’ Summer Theater Conservatory provides a personalized environment with a staff ratio of 1:7. In this three-week-long session, every child participates in each aspect of the production: Acting/Singing/Dancing, Costumes, Set Design and Construction, Props, Running Crew. There will be performances on the last Friday and Saturday of the camp. These performances will be held at the Bayside Performing Arts Center at 2025 Kehoe Drive in San Mateo. The Friday performance is at 7pm on August 4 and the Saturday performance is at 1pm on August 5. There will be a quick strike after the Saturday performance.
