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.

Greenbelt Arts Center presents the East Coast premiere of Quadrille: A Romantic Play Story and Script by Melynda Kiring, Directed by Stephen Foreman
1 Self-Sufficient Woman Baker
1 Nobleman in need of a Cook
1 Sweet Young Lady
1 Dashing Hero
Preheat to the year 1835. Mix the Baker and the Nobleman together until romance blossoms. For a little confusion, gently add the Sweet Young Lady into the mix. Sprinkle in a pinch of frustrated love, and then add a dash of Hero rushing in to save the day. Bake at 350 degrees for the length of one duel, or until ready to admit the truth. Serves them all right.
Quadrille is a delicious tale featuring romance, secret plots, good food, more secret plots, bad food, heroic duels, and plenty of perfectly prepared corn muffins.
Featuring Jim Adams, Jeannette Connors, Justin Diaz, Tyler Dos Santos, Michaela Haber, Michael Iacone, and Pamela Northrup
