"It was hilarious!" "It was well worth our drive from Nashville." "…we have never laughed so hard in our lives." "…this is the best one yet!"
Those are a few of the comments we received from the over 400 people in attendance on opening weekend of Meal Ticket. Better yet, we had people in the audience from Nashville, Pontotoc MS, Cape Girardeau MO, Portland OR and Seattle WA. How cool is that! But the icing on the cake was that we were graced with the presence of three troupers who performed on Toby Shows years ago. Mickey Lacey joined us from his home in Arkansas, Roberta Wilkes traveled from Kansas, and Mark Peper trekked from Illinois to be with us. These folks worked with different troupes over the years including Bisbee's Comedians, Slout Players, Chick Boyes Comedians, Sun Players, Tilton Comedians, and Schaffner Players. Mickey performed a couple of songs for us, one with Toby, and Roberta did a bit during the vaudeville along with Mickey and Mark.
Don't miss the show! The last two performances are Friday, October 4th and Saturday, October 5th at 7:30pm.

On Friday afternoon September 27th, while working under the tent, we were greeted by a lady asking for information about what was going on. We found out that she, Mary Jane, was part of a group of four ladies bicycling the Underground Railroad. We explained to her the history of the Toby Show and about our show. Well we were certainly glad to see these ladies at the head of the line waiting to get in on Friday night. They even included a little about our show on their blog. You can read it here. Thanks ladies and it was nice meeting you. Safe travels!
Roberta Wilkes, a former trouper, wrote about her upcoming trip to our Toby Show this year in the Summer edition of Winging It. You can read the article here.
In the Winter 2013 edition of Winging It, the newsletter of The National Society for the Preservation of Tent, Folk and Repertoire Theatre, Mickey Lacey, a former Bisbee's trouper, wrote a glowing article about his attendance at our 2012 Toby Show. We are so honored by his words. You can read the article here.
