1979: Curtain rises at Toby's

Toby Orenstein opened Toby's Dinner Theatre with a limited warm-up production of Godspell on Dec. 4. The grand opening was planned for New Year's Eve when Jean Ann Kain headlined Hello, Dolly. The dinner theater was the first in the area to use the arena style. Before opening Toby's, Orenstein directed plays at Slayton House and at area high schools.
