The Phantom Tollbooth
Please note, this event has expired.
Trevcca Theatre presents the exuberant, high-energy, family-friendly fantasy, THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, playfully adapted by Susan Nanus from Norton Juster’s beloved children’s book, found in just about every school library.
Trevecca Nazarene University’s 2017-2018 theatre season celebrating adaptations of great literature continues! In THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, we follow the adventures of Milo, a boy bored with everything, but surprised by the sudden appearance of an enormous, strange parcel in his bedroom. Opening it, he discovers a tollbooth through which he decides to travel to a place seemingly unlike his own. He not only encounters various characters and creatures, but also helps save the Princesses Rhyme and Reason who have been banished to the Castle-in-the-Air far beyond the Mountains of Ignorance. The princesses return and restore peace to the Land of Wisdom.
On his journey, Milo learns to unlock his imagination, to solve problems, to work together with others, and to see the world in a new way. Some of the key themes of THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH are exploration, discovery, community, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, team work, conflict resolution, choice and consequences, and friendship. Directed by Trevecca theatre alumna Jillian Frame, this rollicking, rockin’ reboot of a children’s classic is truly perfect for the whole family and for children of all ages!
$5/Children age 10 and under
