The Toby Show was originally performed in Branson in the late 60’s and will return this season as a dinner show offering light hearted comedy for the whole family.
Beginning as a traveling, vaudeville style show , the Toby Show is a story of good versus evil with the main character representing a cowboy, lumberjack, or farmer- depending on the region.Loyd “Shad” Heller was the original shepherd of and co-writer fo the Shepherd of the Hills and played an instrumental part in in bringing the play to life in the early days. In the 60’s, Shad Heller and his wife Mollie were inspired by Irene Ryan from the Beverly Hillbillies to put together their own Toby Show for the community of Branson. In 1969, the Wilderness Settlement became home to the Toby Show along with a taffy shop and the Corn Crib Theatre.
