Milo travels through the Forest of Sight where he experiences different Points of View, accidently leaps to the Island of Conclusions and travels through the Mountains of Ignorance, where he must escape its Demons to save the Princesses. With the help of his steadfast companions, he perseveres and brings Rhyme and Reason home, restoring peace to the realm. Along the way something magical happens to Milo; he discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity and knowledge, and that life — his own life — is filled with endless possibilities. THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, based on the classic novel written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer, is considered one of the best 100 children’s books of all time.

HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL (SENSORY-FRIENDLY)
February 2, 2019

Comedian Robert Post barely survived middle school. One of his childhood report cards in Columbus, Ohio, gave a hint as to how his future might unfold. Struggling because of various learning disabilities, he found that making people laugh saved him. Not amused by Robert’s antics, his teacher created a whole new column of categories describing maladaptive behavior. The result: a dazzling performance career that continues to defy categories. In this multimedia performance, kids talk to kids in a compelling, funny and educational show. Dealing with real issues affecting students today including social media, testing, bullying and peer pressure these video testimonials by kids and their advocates (along with a generous dose of Post’s signature humor) is sure to resonate with school and public audiences alike. This production is specifically designed for children with an autism spectrum disorder, other sensory processing diagnoses, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgement-free environment where all patrons can feel free to vocalize or move around the theatre if they need to. At no time, will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to sound, movement or behaviors related to differing cognitive/developmental abilities. It is our hope that this production will make attending the theatre an enjoyable experience for all children and families.

THE YOUNG KING
May 9-12, 2019

Journey in wonder to a land of challenging choices & rich rewards. From the moment you arrive at the Arts Annex, you become a part of the story. Once there was a princess who dearly loved a poor woodland man. For this, she was banished by her father, the King. The couple had a baby. But he was stolen away in the night. The Princess and her woodlander died, brokenhearted. The baby boy was raised by a goatherd in a deep forest. Years passed and the King neared the end of his life. He called for his grandson to be brought to the palace. “You are not a young goatherd,” he said, “you are the Young King.”
And the Young King gladly threw aside his rough goatherd’s cloak and staff. He embraced the glittering riches of the palace. For his coronation, the Young King demanded the most rare and costly silks and jewels for his robe, scepter and crown. On the eve of his coronation, in his velvet-canopied bed, the Young King was visited by three dreams. In the first, pale, crooked children bent over looms of golden thread to weave the King’s robe. In the second, a slave drew his last breath diving for pearls for the King’s scepter. And in the third, a deep mining pit of disease and famine brought forth rubies for the King’s crown. The Young King awoke in deep distress. He shunned the robe, scepter and crown and reached instead for his humble goatherd’s cloak and staff. He made a circlet of briar thorns for his head. His courtiers beseeched him: “how shall the people know you are King?” The townsfolk laughed, then grew angry: “Don’t you know, from your luxury comes our living?” In turmoil, the Young King walked away from the palace to the edge of the city. He walked to where the forest began. And as the woodland welcomed him, he felt his heart and his step lighten. He turned to face the people one last time. And the sunlight beamed down and wove about him a robe brighter than gold, and his staff blossomed with lilies whiter than pearls, and his circlet of briar bloomed with roses redder than rubies. And he, and all the world around, knew he was King. What kind of king or queen would you be? The Young King’s courtiers will teach you how to greet the king before whisking you up to be part of the coronation. Journey with the Young King to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards. In this production, the beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate, immersive and magical world of Slingsby Theatre Company from Australia. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
