The Valley Youth Theater, 525 N. First Street in Phoenix, brings a children’s book character and the world’s most-famous pen pal project to life when it presents “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley.”

This show will be available from April 10-26. Tickets are $20.

“We love bringing the page to the stage,” said producing artistic director Bobb Cooper. “It’s always fun to see how playwrights adapt these stories and for us to then find the perfect cast, build sets that suspend disbelief and design costumes that add dimension to the characters – or in Stanley’s case, two-dimensions.”

Award-winning actor Sam Primack, 13, takes the lead as Flat Stanley – a boy who is flattened in his sleep by a bulletin board, but awakens to discover he can now travel by mail.

The cast consists of 18 actors, ages 12 to 16, who sing and dance their way through this musical based on the children’s book “Flat Stanley” by Jeff Brown. Seven of the cast members are from Phoenix, four each from Scottsdale and Chandler, two from Paradise Valley and one from Tempe; five are new to the VYT stage.

Tickets to “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley” are available by calling the VYT box office at 602-253-8188 x2 or ordering online at VYT.com.

The Scottsdale Independent is published monthly and mailed to 75,000 homes and businesses in Scottsdale.
