This musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge became a ten year tradition at New York’s Madison Square Garden and now this wonderful musical version returns to the Toby’s stage. Filled with beautiful melodies, dazzling choreography and grand ‘spirits’, A Christmas Carol is pure joy and is sure to brighten everyone’s holiday season!
Celebrate 100 years of Dr. Seuss! In this story the beloved Seuss characters are brought to life. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains Whoville (the tiniest planet in the sky), including one little Who named Jojo, who is always in trouble for thinking too many thinks! Horton is faced with protecting the Whos from a dangerous world and the Sour Kangaroo, but also finds himself protecting an egg that was abandoned by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. The faithful Horton is able to overcome ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial with the help of his trusty neighbor Gertrude McFuzz. Friendship, loyalty and the community are challenged, but ultimately win! This fits in beautifully with lessons in: MAKING A DIFFERENCE, FACING INJUSTICES, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, INVESTIGATING PERSONAL STRENGTH, DETERMINATION, COMMUNITY, HOW THINGS CHANGE, RHYTHM AND RHYME, and CARING ABOUT MYSELF AND OTHERS.

Who knew nuns could be so much fun? In “Sister Act,” currently playing at Toby’s Columbia, nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier shows an order of nuns that there’s more to life than penance and genuflection. And if this musical is good enough to get those serious nuns moving and grooving, what chance does the audience have?
Many musicals contain broad societal themes or historical events as the backdrop for the production. Sister Act is not one of them. Instead, the musical takes the audience on a jolly, at times silly, feel-good journey that demonstrates how people can change for the better if given the right environment and support.
Spread the news! It’s time to rock the pews! Toby’s Dinner Theatre of Columbia has caught Sunday morning fever! And it’s burning wild with happiness as Sister Act, the five-time Tony Award-Nominated musical, flocks with glory into the intimate theatre-in-the-round space under the Direction of Lawrence B. Munsey. With Musical Direction by Ross Scott Rawlings and spectacular Choreography by Helen Hayes Award-Winner Mark Minnick, this soulful feel-good musical will lift your spirits straight up to heaven and create an excitingly memorable theatrical experience for everyone in attendance.
Review: ‘Sister Act’ at Toby’s The Dinner Theatre of Columbia by John Harding at DC Metro Theater Arts
Nuns are more fun in the round. That’s a catechism we learned at Toby’s Dinner Theatre via Nunsense and other shows so many times it became an article of faith. Now Toby’s is up to its wimples in old habits with Sister Act, and it is guaranteed to turn every last “doubting Thomas” out there [...]
