The beloved children’s book written by Jeff Brown is a literary and pop culture phenomenon, delighting readers all around the world. And now, everyone’s favorite two-dimensional hero has a new life in The Musical Adventures Of Flat Stanley JR. Filled with infectious songs and non-stop adventure, Flat Stanley JR. is a perfect show to introduce young performers to the magic of live theatre.
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday ten-year-old until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley wakes up 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 Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.
Stanley’s journey takes him all across the globe, to many interesting locales, filled with lots of colorful characters, which make for great casting opportunities.
Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that played a remarkable 13-year run on Broadway and has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
This “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities or, even more simply staged, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.

What to Expect
Theatre is a big commitment of time and energy. When making the decision to participate in our program please be mindful of our schedule and the importance of rehearsals. Please note that not everyone is called to every rehearsal. Actors will only be called when they are needed to work. Attendance at ALL technical (tech) week rehearsals as well as ALL performances is mandatory. Please note that unexcused absences may result in the forfeiture of your child’s role.
All rehearsal schedules are made by the Director and are based on several factors such as cast and staff availability, space availability, process made on scenes and blocking, etc.
An advance rehearsal schedule is NOT available before the first cast meeting/rehearsal.
Most directors continually update the rehearsal schedule throughout the creative process and communicate via email to actors (and parents). Most of the MCCT rehearsals are late afternoons and evenings, and one or both days each weekend, and there are times that a rehearsal could be earlier in the day.
