Frankentoby, A Toby Show Opening Weekend


We've had great feedback from those who attended the opening weekend of Frankentoby. As we near our second weekend of performances there is a slight (wink, wink) chance of rain in the forecast, but don't worry, the tent doesn't leak. Come out and join us this weekend, if you can't make it you still have two more weekends to catch the show.

New Performance Space

The City of Parsons has allowed us to begin converting an 8,000 square foot former airplane hangar into a new performance space. We have constructed a 40' x 24' stage, complete with masking curtains and lighting. The Young Rivertime Players production of Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy? was the first performance on the new stage.

We are excited about this new space! But there is still a lot of renovations needed including restrooms, concessions, dressing rooms, heat and airconditioning. If you would like to make a donation toward the completion of the theatre, contact us or you can make a donation online on our Support page.

What I Gained

On the night of the final performance of Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy?, each cast member was asked the question "What have you gained from being in this production?" See their responses in the video below.

Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy?

"I loved it. They did a wonderful job." "A thank you to everyone who gives their time for the kids." "I drove 2 1/2 hours to see my niece and nephew because it was so good last year and did not disappoint this time."

Based on the responses, the Young Rivertime Players spring production of Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy?, featuring a cast of twenty two, was a huge success.
