***** for immediate release *****

Reindeer Theatre Company will be presenting the delightful children’s story THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH at the Warren Memorial Library Auditorium in Westbrook.

Directed by Jamie Cluchey, THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH showcases a cast of 20 talented young area actors from the Westbrook area:

Jessalyn Bergeron, Miranda Bulmer, Rachel Champoux, Rayne Chase, Martin Dorn, Sadie Dorn Raelyn Rackliff, Riley Schumacher and Trevor York all of Westbrook; Julia Cornell, Rachel Dalton, Annie Donovan and Owen Donovan, all of Portland; Tatiana Curtis of Lisbon; Niels Doughty of Scarborough; Cassidy Merrill of Buxton; Becca Myshrall, Ben Myshrall and Emily Myshrall of Windham; and Katie Zema of South Portland.

Written by Susan Nanus and based on the book by Norton Juster, the play centers around a boy named Milo who is bored by everything in his life. That is, until the day that a tollbooth appears in his bedroom. Because he has nothing better to do with his day, he grabs his toy car and drives through — into a world unlike anything he has ever known. As Milo travels through Dictionopolis and Digitopolis, he meets many crazy characters, and, with the help of his faithful watchdog, Tock, he journeys toward the Mountains of Ignorance on a mission to rescue the twin princesses, Rhyme and Reason.

Reindeer Theatre Company presents THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH for two weekends: Friday, March 31, Saturday, April 1, Sunday, April 2 and Friday, April 7, Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7 PM, and Sunday shows are 2 o’clock matinees.

The Auditorium is located on the second floor of the Warren Memorial Library, located at 479 Main St., in downtown Westbrook. Tickets are $10 for Adults and $5 for Children under 18 and Seniors. Reservations can be made by calling 857-9002.
