Where in the World is Flat Stanley?
When we first came up with the idea of creating an Orlando Shakes Flat Stanley (to coincide with our Children’s Series production of The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley this October), I hoped it would catch on. But I never dreamed our little Stanley would become a seriously accomplished traveler!
Thanks to Orlando Shakes staff, actors, designers, stage managers, Board Members, patrons, and friends, Stanley has already been to 17 of the 50 states in the USA, including New York, Texas, Nevada, and Hawaii! He’s even been out of the country, traveling to historic Italian sites like Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, and the Vatican! Additional international travels include Beijing, China; Toronto, Canada; and the Irish countryside!
It’s become an exciting game for me, checking off cities as new photos come in. I’m looking forward to traveling with Stanley myself in the beginning of August. We’ll be visiting family in the great plains of South Dakota—stay tuned for pictures of Stanley in front of hay bales and meeting smelly livestock!
You can check out Stanley’s travel photo album on Facebook or Flickr. Going on an adventure of your own? Print your very own Flat Stanley and bring him along! Post your photos on our Facebook wall or tag us on Instagram and Twitter (@orlandoShakes).
