Since its first performance in 1990 at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, thousands have been enthralled by this fantasy that introduces children to the magic of live theatre with a yarn about a fantastic journey and mythical creatures. The Island of Anyplace was produced at least annually at the A.R.T. from 1990 until 2009.
