The Phantom Tollbooth
January 13, 2019
An original stage adaptation of the beloved classic by Norton Juster, with illustrations by Jules Feiffer
By special arrangement with Norton Juster & Jules Feiffer
Milo, the boy “who didn’t know what to do with himself,” drives his toy car through a mysterious tollbooth that appears in his bedroom and soon finds himself on an eventful and dangerous quest rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason, who, in the war between words and numbers, have been banished to the Castle in the Air. Milo travels through the Forest of Sight where he experiences different Points of View, accidently leaps to the Island of Conclusions and travels through the Mountains of Ignorance, where he must escape its Demons in order to save the Princesses. With the help of his steadfast companions, he perseveres and brings Rhyme and Reason home, restoring peace to the realm. Along the way something magical happens to Milo; he discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity and knowledge, and that life — his own life — is filled with endless possibilities.
Story Pirates Greatest Hits
February 24, 2019
The Story Pirates Greatest Hits Show celebrates creative writing by students from coast to coast in a big, hilarious sketch comedy musical performed by professional actors and musicians. The performance is based entirely on stories written by elementary school students, and part of the show is made up on the spot by the kids in the audience! Called "crazy entertaining" by the Daily Show's Jon Stewart, Story Pirates will keep you doubled over laughing, all the while motivating kids to pick up a pencil and write from their own imaginations. Sketches run the gamut from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime to cats flying to tickle monsters who rule the world.
