Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia has always been a regional treasure for theatergoers, but the current production of "Memphis: The Musical" has a particular tie to our county with a trio of Anne Arundel Community College alumni offering stellar performances. Andre Hinds and Anwar Thomas of AACC Dance Company and Tobias Young of Opera AACC make memorable contributions to this show. Overall, this rendition of the 2010 Tony award-winning "Memphis" proves that no smash hit is too big for Toby's to produce with pizazz.

Music tourists take note: Memphis has been holding an array of events since last month celebrating Presley's first commercial record and the seismic cultural shift that followed.
