The Phantom Tollbooth
November 01, 2018 | 9:30
Presented by Enchantment Theatre Company
One day a mysterious tollbooth appears in Milo’s room and having nothing better to do, he drives his toy car through it. To his astonishment and increasing delight, he finds himself in a peculiar new world, where everyone he encounters is literally an embodiment of their name, from the ticking watchdog, Tock, to the loveable but nonsensical Humbug. Milo soon finds himself on an eventful and dangerous quest: he is tasked with rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason, who, in the war between words and numbers, have been banished to the Castle in the Air. Along the way he meets Azaz the Unabridged, the king of Dictionopolis, his brother the Mathemagician, the ruler of Digitopolis, and Faintly Macabre, the not-so-wicked Which. Milo travels through the Forest of Sight, accidently leaps to the Island of Conclusions and travels through the Mountains of Ignorance, where he must escape its Demons in order to save the Princesses. Along the way, Milo discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity and knowledge, and that life — his own life — is filled with endless possibilities.
