Love going here...only problem is that it is so expensive to see a show! We are seniors and even the senior prices are high! Would love to go more but can't afford it too often!

We have been attending productions at Toby's Dinner Theater for over a decade. Momma Mia was by far the best production! I wanted to get up to sing and dance with the cast!

We had a great time celebrating my son-in-law's birthday watching Mama Mia. The food was good, the drinks a little weak but the talent was excellent! A great night of fun for all of us.
