Paramount Presents: The Phantom Tollbooth
Live Events | 01/24/2019 | 6:00PM
“There once was a boy named Milo who didn’t know what to do with himself – not just sometimes, but always.” When a mysterious tollbooth appears in his bedroom, Milo drives his toy car through and finds himself on an eventful quest to rescue Princesses Rhyme and Reason from the Castle in the Air. With the help of steadfast companions, Milo discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity, and knowledge, and ultimately that life is filled with endless possibilities. Enchantment Theatre Company brings Norton Juster’s fantastical classic to life using puppets, masks, magic, inventive scenic effects, and original music.

More About Enchantment Theatre Company: Enchantment Theatre Company is a non-profit arts organization resident in Philadelphia. They have been guided by their mission: to create original theater for young audiences and families. They accomplish this through the imaginative telling of stories that inspire, challenge and enrich their audience, on stage and in the classroom. All of Enchantment’s productions are original adaptations of new and classic fables, myths and legends, combined with original music. Drawing on great theatrical traditions from around the world—from the Bunraku theater of Japan, to the shadow puppets of Indonesia, to commedia dell’arte—Enchantment weaves these together in compelling productions of beauty and inspiration. They employ a unique combination of art forms to tell their stories: masked actors, magic and illusion, puppets (often life-size) and mime, all set to classical or original music.
