Journey's "The Phantom Tollbooth, Jr." Opens This Weekend

THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, JR., presented by the Journey Theater Arts Group opens this weekend at Ft. Vancouver High School for a two week run.

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 JR.!

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. Aided by a trusty time-keeping dog, Tock, Milo successfully brings harmony to the Land of Wisdom and learns many things about words and numbers along his journey. Perhaps the most important lesson he takes with him, however, is that everything we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone. When he returns home, he realizes there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of so many things to discover.

With a book adapted 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, THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH JR. is an endearing show that audiences of all ages will find appealing.

Location: Fort Vancouver High School Auditorium, 5700 East 18th Street, Vancouver WA 98661
