Adventures in Toyland in Broadway ADVENTURES IN TOYLAND
Storybook Musical Theatre
12/12-12/30/2018
“Adventures in Toyland” is written and directed by Storybook’s own Artistic Director, Patricia Goldberg, with music and lyrics by Jeff Reim. This creative tale tells the story of how four extraordinary toys come to life to help a young boy face his fears, build his confidence, and make his dreams come to life. The play opens late one night as young Michael, who awake from a bad dream, runs into his playroom so no one will hear him crying. Rag Doll, Captain Combat, Pirate Pete, and Princess Ballerina Belle hearing his cries decide to come to life and help Michael. They encourage him to use his imagination to travel to new places, discover new things, and confront his fears, all without ever leaving the playroom. Together, the five explore the jungles of Africa, sail the high seas, skyrocket to the moon, and auto race back to the playroom. Along the way, Michael saves the Rag Doll from charging rhinos, helps Pirate Pete bury his treasure, sings and dances with the Man on the Moon, and manages to get everyone back to his playroom safely before the new day dawns. Throughout his adventures, Michael learns that he can be anything he wants to be just by using his imagination and believing in himself.
