Based on Norton Juster’s captivating book, this fantastical adventure begins with a boy named Milo sitting alone and bored in his room, when suddenly a mysterious tollbooth appears. He drives his toy car through it into an astonishing land of unusual and interesting inhabitants. Milo and his new friend, Tock, the ticking watchdog, must navigate dangerous terrain to rescue princesses Rhyme and Reason. They alone can reunite the warring cities of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis with the Kingdom of Wisdom. Through puppets, masks, magic, inventive scenic effects, and original music, the wonder of Milo’s journey comes alive as he discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity, and possibility.
