In the book The Phantom Tollbooth, Milo is bored with everything. But when a mysterious package arrives, Milo finds himself on thrilling adventure to Rhyme and Reason back to a fractured land Beyond. SPT Youth Program is proud to present this classic tale about finding wonder and magic in everyday life.

Norton Juster’s tale returns to the Seattle Public Theater (SPT) stage. Originally published in 1961 and filled with the iconic illustrations of Jules Pfeiffer, Juster’s epic of puns and wordplay is a celebration of language itself and is a guaranteed delight for audiences both young and old.

Four FREE performances from SPT’s student actors will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 26, 27 and 28 will be held at the historic Bathhouse Theater on Green Lake. Donations are encouraged, and go to support SPT’s Youth Scholarship Fund.

Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock says, “Rehearsing with this ensemble is a terrific, joyful adventure. I invite all ages to come and share in the company of these delightful teenagers. I’m so impressed with the spirit of risk and playfulness in each individual and the group as a whole!”
