To our loyal patrons, subscribers and friends,
Toby’s is excited to announce our return to the stage starting with our holiday show on November 12th! Under current State of Maryland COVID guidelines, we are restricted to a combined audience and cast of 100 or less inside the theater. We apologize for any inconvenience these occupancy restrictions may cause, but please know that our focus remains on providing the best entertainment for your safety and enjoyment.
We have been working behind the scenes making updates and improvements. Our ventilation/air handler systems within the entire facility have been cleaned and outfitted with new UV germicidal lighting designed to target airborne viruses. We have also added hand sanitizing stations, increased cleaning procedures on high-touch surfaces, and adjusted our tables to conform to six foot distancing requirements. We are also temporarily changing our traditional buffet to a served, plated meal. More information on these updates can be found on our website. Please familiarize yourself with the information before arriving for any upcoming performances.
In view of the current restrictions for social distancing on and off stage we are unable to bring you our holiday production of ELF, The Musical. Instead, we are excited to announce that we will be bringing you a Toby’s original holiday production of Home for the Holidays, A Musical Celebration of the Season, featuring some of your favorite Toby’s performers! While we were not able to reschedule ELF, The Musical to next holiday season, we are able to reschedule it for July. We hope you’ll join us for Christmas in July!
In other scheduling news, due to current COVID-19 restrictions on theatre capacity as well as our cast and rehearsal requirements, we have determined that our January production will now be GODSPELL, with Monty Python’s SPAMALOT moving to May. We appreciate your understanding of the technical difficulties we are operating under and truly hope this will be the last time we will have to change our schedule.
For our Toby’s Subscription Club Members, your 2020 subscriptions will now be valid through August 22, 2021. We will not be offering a new subscription program this fall for our 2021 season, so that our 2020 subscribers will have the opportunity to use their remaining tickets for the rescheduled shows taking place in 2021. We know many of you purchase subscriptions for holiday gifts, so this year please consider giving a Toby’s Gift Certificate that can be used for a show of their choice during the next 5 years. Please check our website for additional information about Toby’s Gift Certificate program.
We greatly appreciate your continued patience and understanding during this unpredictable time. Please continue to check our website for the latest information and upcoming shows. If you have any questions or you need to speak with our Box Office, please call 410-730-8311. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the theatre you know and love!
Thank you for your continued support,
Toby’s Dinner Theatre Management and Staff
