MainStreet Theatre Company Presents
The Phantom Tollbooth
Based on the book by Norton Juster
Book by Norton Juster & Sheldon Harnick
Music by Arnold Black
Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
Directed by Jessica Kubzansky
Often compared to "Alice In Wonderland" because of its wonderful wordplay and sense of playfulness, the novel celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011! This musical version captures all the fantasy and delight of the original and brings it vividly to life! When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in Milo's room, he follows the directions and drives through, only because he's bored and has nothing better to do. But on the other side, things are very different! He gets stuck in the Doldrums, befriends a ticking watchdog named Tock, meets the feuding kings of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis, and goes on a quest to rescue the princesses Rhyme and Reason! Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes that life is far from dull - in fact, it's exciting beyond his wildest dreams!
(For ages 7+)
The Phantom Tollbooth TYA version is presented through special arrangement with (MTI) Music Theatre International.
