We performed this in junior high school. I was the Demon of Insincerity :D
I thought this production version of "The Phantom Tollbooth," originally written by Norton Juster, was written very well as both a story and a play. With this script, Susan Nanus does justice to the original book. It follows the original story very well, even with some added parts and some more funny moments. In the script, a young boy named Milo is bored out of his mind, that is until he discovers a mysterious tollbooth in his room, and upon entering it takes not only just Milo, but also the r
I did this play while I was in Junior High. It was quite fun. I played: The Lethargians, The awful Dynne, (Discord’s assistant) I also played one more character but I can’t remember the name. The page or something like that.
A very serviceable adaptation that captures the spirit and the fun of the novel.
Clever and delightful.
I got to page 50 and just couldn't read any more. It may be a great book for kids, but not for me. The part I read reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, except the mad hatter scene goes on and on and on. ie- 'lets eat light for dinner' 'trays of light come out' ha, ha so funny. . .light and light. . .I get it, light is both a noun AND an adjective. One word, two meanings!. . .fun. . . Seriously though, I feel like I just spent the last hour in room full of 6-9 year olds and need adult conversation
Milo is a young boy who is very bored one day so he travels some place new. As Milo travels through this different world he learn about the importance of time and to believe in yourself. While in this different world he learns about the Princesses who are trapped in the castle-in-the-air. Read the book to find out how Milo saves these princesses and what lessons he learns on his way.
I did not like this book at all! It was so boring, confusing, and an all around bad book. Don't read it!
This was my favorite book for almost all of my childhood. It really started me thinking. It's one I read and re-read over and over. It will always have a special place in my heart.
This was fun to read along with the book, The Phantom Tollbooth. I'd love to see this play.
Great adaptation of the original. Just finished directing it -- one of my favorites for children!
