“A masterful fusion of engaging storytelling with the performing and visual arts, which appeals to all of the senses, stimulates intuitive thinking, and captivates adults and children alike.” - DCMetroTheaterArts
Milo, the boy “who didn’t know what to do with himself,” drives his toy car through a mysterious tollbooth that appears in his bedroom and soon finds himself on an eventful and dangerous quest rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason, who, in the war between words and numbers, have been banished to the Castle in the Air. 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 in order to rescue the princesses.
With the help of his steadfast companions, Milo 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.
Enchantment Theatre Company is thrilled to bring this captivating story to the stage. Using puppets, masks, magic, inventive scenic effects, and original music, the wonder and adventure of the story comes alive. Join them as their journey along with Milo to the Lands Beyond and discover that with humor, good friends and a little bit of courage, anything is possible.
