2009 Toby Show - Lead Petunias
Set in a familiar beauty shop in a small southern town, "Lead Petunias" is a story of strong women overcoming unforeseen obstacles. Keeping with the Toby Show tradition of taking popular plays and rewriting them with the insertion of the Toby character, this tale is one you'll likely recognize. Boovy is a buxom blonde running a small boutique. Her best friend is M'Liss, whose daughter Belle is about to marry a local boy, Henderson. Except for their "friend" Sneezer's sharp tongue, and an economic downturn, everything is going just as planned in rural America. That is, until the wily big city duo of Ida Clairee and Hailey S. Darkhart move to town and flip this much-loved story on it's ear. Can Toby outsmart the city slickers and save the day?
