Milo is a boy who doesn’t know what to do with himself. So when a mysterious tollbooth appears in his bedroom, he drives his toy car through it and finds himself on the quest of a lifetime. Along the way, Milo rescues the Princesses Rhyme and Reason—who, in the war between words and numbers, have been banished to the Castle in the Air—travels through the Forest of Sight, accidently leaps to the Island of Conclusions, and navigates the Mountains of Ignorance, where he must escape its demons. With the help of his 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 captivating story to the stage using puppets, masks, magic, scenic effects, and original music.
