Even surrounded by dozens of toys, Milo is bored. Nothing interests him
at all. The Demons of Ignorance are certain he will be their next
victim, telling him “If you get the urge to do anything - don’t. It
could be dangerous.” To the rescue comes THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH JR.!
beloved children’s book is given full musical treatment in this
acclaimed stage version of the modern tale of a boy who must save the
princesses Rhyme and Reason and reunite the brother Kings who rule over
the cities of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis. Aided by a trusty
time-keeping dog, Tock, Milo successfully brings harmony to the Land of
Wisdom and learns many things about words and numbers along his journey.
Perhaps the most important lesson he takes with him, however, is that
everything we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything
and everyone. When he returns home, he realizes there is never a reason
to be bored in a world full of so many things to discover.
With a book adapted by Mr. Juster himself, witty lyrics full of wordplay by Sheldon Harnick (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, SHE LOVES ME) and a melodious score by Arnold Black, THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH JR. is an endearing show that audiences of all ages will find appealing.SPECIAL EDITIONS OF THE NOVEL NOW AVAILABLE
