WUSD Playhouse production of ‘Phantom Tollbooth Jr. begins July 11

By Tom Ganser


A refreshing break from the heat – both the weather and the political climate – will be evident from the get-go in the Whitewater Unified School District’s Summer School Playhouse production of “The Phantom Tollbooth Jr.”

It is scheduled for July 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. and July 13 at 2 p.m. in the Whitewater High School auditorium.

To order reserved seat tickets at $8 for adults and $5 for students, call the WHS box office at 262-472-8178.

Norton Juster’s beloved children’s book, “The Phantom Tollbooth,” is adapted for the stage in this modern tale of a boy who must save the princesses Rhyme and Reason and reunite the brother Kings who rule over the cities of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis.

Aided by a trusty time-keeping dog, Tock, Milo successfully brings harmony to the Land of Wisdom, finding that everything we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone — and that there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of so many things to discover.
