The Phantom Tollbooth

Bert Bowes Middle School presents The Phantom Tollbooth JR
Friday, Feb 26 @ 7PM
Adults $12, Students & Seniors $8, Children $5

The Phantom Tollbooth JR. tells the story of a ten-year-old named Milo, who is so bored with the world that nothing ever interests him, least of all the things or people that should.  One day Milo discovers a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room.  Upon driving through the Tollbooth’s gates, Milo commences a fantastic adventure which playfully draws inspiration from grammatical and mathematical concepts.  Armed with a dictionary and pencil and accompanied by a faithful “watch” dog Tock, Milo must battle the demons of ignorance, re-unite the kingdoms of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis and achieve the “impossible” mission of returning two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom.

Throughout The Phantom Tollbooth JR. we see a young boy Milo learn ‘what you can do is often a matter of what you will do’ and experience how much better life can be when he engages in the world with curiosity and imagination.
