The Phantom Tollbooth

Told with whimsey, humor and moments of danger and intrigue, Norton Juster’s enduring fantasy adventure novel is brought to life on the stage. Milo, a very bored young boy whose bedroom is overflowing with toys, receives a strange package containing a make-believe tollbooth. As he drives through it in his toy car, he is transported to a magical world of imagination and allegory. Milo soon realizes that all is not well in the Lands Beyond, and he and his new companions, the watchdog Tock and the braggart beetle Humbug, set out on an epic journey to rescue the Princesses Sweet Rhyme and Pure Reason. Along the way, Milo learns valuable lessons that give him the ability to best each obstacle with knowledge and humor. Celebrating the value of education and appreciating the things of everyday life, with incredible plot twists and seemingly impossible tasks, The Phantom Tollbooth takes the audience on one of the greatest adventures ever told!
