The Rivertime Players have announced this year's 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. Meal Ticket, written by Robert LaThey in 1932, is a play that Bisbee's Comedians used as they toured through these parts, which means this probably isn't the first time this play has been presented in Parsons. Rivertime Players are proud to bring it to life again as part of our city's 100th Birthday. The dates for the 2013 Toby Show are Friday, September 27; Saturday, September 28; Friday, October 4; and Saturday, October 5. All shows begin at 7:30pm. The tent will open one hour before curtain and pre-show entertainment will begin one-half hour before curtain. Make plans to see this show and bring all your family and friends!
