Lincoln, New Hampshire — March 8, 2016 — Jean’s Teens are proud to present The Phantom Tollbooth at Jean’s Playhouse April 1-3

Jean’s Teens, the teen theatre group operated by Jean’s Playhouse in cooperation with Lin-Wood Public School, will be presenting The Phantom Tollbooth on April 1st and 2nd at 7:00 pm and April 3rd at 2:00 pm.

The Phantom Tollbooth, based on the book written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer, tells the story of a boy named Milo who is bored by everything. One day, he discovers a gift in his room: “a genuine turnpike tollbooth.” He decides to ride his toy car through it and is instantly transported to the Kingdom of Wisdom, once prosperous but now troubled. During his travels he passes through strange places, like The Doldrums where he meets the Lethargarians and a watchdog named Tock, who joins him on his journey.

They travel to Dictionopolis where they meet many strange characters, including King Azaz, who is obsessed with words and letters. King Azaz has a brother, the Mathemagician, who lives in Digitopolis and is obsessed with numbers. Their sisters, Princess Rhyme and Princess Reason, used to be able to keep the kingdom calm, before they were banished to the Land of Ignorance! It then becomes Milo’s quest, with the help of Tock and their friend The Humbug, to rescue the Princesses and battle the demons trying to stop them. The Phantom Tollbooth will be Jean’s Teens sixth production, with young participants from Lincoln, Woodstock, Thornton, Bethlehem, Waterville Valley and Plymouth.
