(Feb 12-April 6) FLAT STANLEY Adventure Theatre hosts a charismatic guy who's anything but flat. The New Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley opens tonight and runs through April 6th out at Glen Echo Park in Maryland. After the bulletin board above Stanley's bed comes loose, he wakes up flat as a pancake. But his new figure allows him to slide under locked doors, become a trampoline and mail himself in an envelope to adventures around the world. A Pajama Party is scheduled tonight at 7 p.m., and a Flat Stanley book club meeting next Saturday, February 20th.
