This project consists of the selection, background research and documentation, casting, direction, and post-production analysis of Ben Eielson Junior/Senior high's production of Susan Nanus's adaptation of Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth. Documentation included research and analysis of the play and an evaluation of the play as a production vehicle for the Department of Theatre Arts at Central Washington University. The analysis also includes a discussion as to the non-traditional directorial vision of this production.
