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! Norton Juster’s 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. Adapted from the book 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.
Li Ciaglo, Director of Performing Arts at Bay Path, will direct and choreograph the show, with Michael Rheault as Musical Director.
