2013 Toby Show - Meal Ticket

A big city newspaper man is coming to town after buying the local paper. As fate would have it, he employs Toby and moves into the local boarding house, whose owners have little money but a lovely daughter. Will the city slicker take advantage of the poor family (and their daughter) or will Toby and friends take him for a ride? Laughs abound in this tickling tale of love and mirth.


Written by Robert LaThey, Directed by Shane Bridges
