The Phantom Tollbooth

Play By Susan Nanus
Based on the book by Norman Juster

Directed by Jon Gardner
Produced by Win Britt and Ronda Ansted 

Greenbelt Arts Center presents The Phantom Tollbooth, opening the day after Thanksgiving. In this play, the beloved children’s fantasy adventure comes to life as Milo and the faithful watchdog Tock travel to the Lands Beyond. Ten-year old Milo is bored one afternoon, when a tollbooth mysteriously arrives in his room. Traveling in his toy car, Milo arrives in Dictionopolis to discover that King Azaz the Unabridged is at war with The Mathemagician of Digitopolis over whether words or numbers are more important. Joined by Tock and the Humbug, he resolves to rescue Princess Sweet Rhyme and Princess Pure Reason from the Castle-in-the-Air to restore peace to the land. But the castle is guarded by ferocious demons, and he will need all his ingenuity, plus the help of his friends, to succeed.
