Theatre Event

The Keene State Theatre and Dance Department presents:

The Phantom Tollbooth

directed by Daniel L. Patterson, puppetry by Céline Perron


Puppets! Adventure! Puns! Classic family literature! The Phantom Tollbooth is an adolescent adventure and modern fairy tale written by Norton Juster and adapted for the stage by Susan Nanus. This contemporary classic follows the journey of a boy who learns the true value of learning and knowledge. The New York Times says that it has “something wonderful for anybody old enough to relish the allegorical wisdom of Alice in Wonderland and the pointed whimsy of The Wizard of Oz. For children of all ages!


Wednesday-Saturday, March 4-7, at  7:30 p.m. and a school matinee at 9:30 a.m. Friday, March 6.
