“The Phantom Tollbooth” Returns to Proctors [Berkshire on Stage]

“There was once a boy named Milo who didn’t know what to do with himself—not just sometimes, but always.”

Norton Juster’s classic The Phantom Tollbooth returns to Proctors in Schenectady at 7pm on Wednesday (January 9), beginning the New Year with a fantasy-filled family entertainment. Tickets, $20–$40, are available at the Box Office at Proctors, 432 State Street, Schenectady; by phone at 518.346.6204; and online at proctors.org.

Enchantment Theatre Company is thrilled to bring this captivating story to the stage. Using puppets, masks, magic, inventive scenic effects and original music, the wonder and adventure of the story comes alive.

One day a mysterious tollbooth appears in Milo’s room and having nothing better to do, he drives his toy car through it. To his astonishment and increasing delight, he finds himself in a peculiar new world, where everyone he encounters is literally an embodiment of their name, from the ticking watchdog, Tock, to the loveable but nonsensical Humbug.
