Children’s Theatre Troupe
The exceptional tale of Milo, Tock, and a certain magic tollbooth is brought splendidly to life on stage in The Phantom Tollbooth Jr. Adapted from Norton Juster’s beloved, award-winning children’s book, this inventive musical features a melodious score by Arnold Black and witty lyrics full of wordplay by Pulitzer Prize and three-time-Tony-winner, Sheldon Harnick.
Even surrounded by dozens of toys, Milo is bored. Nothing interests him at all… until he takes a trip through the Phantom Tollbooth. Transported to the Land of Wisdom, Milo is thrust into adventure when Princesses Rhyme and Reason need rescuing in order to bring peace between two kings. The kings, from Dictionopolis and Digitopolis, are feuding over whether “words” or “numbers” are most important in their kingdoms. Knee-deep in danger, language, and math along the way, Milo learns everything has a purpose. Upon his return home, he realizes there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of hidden discoveries.
This magical show is performed by local middle schoolers in the CCAC’s Children’s Theatre Troupe!
The Phantom Tollbooth Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
