Toyland ticket sales continue

Even though it’s just starting to feel like fall in Alabama, the Christmas season will be here in the blink of an eye, which is why the time is now to get tickets for the highly-popular holiday event that sold out almost every performance last year.

“The Roxy’s Legend of Toyland” will take place Nov. 28 through Dec. 2 at the Historic Roxy Theatre in downtown Russellville.

Tickets are available to purchase online at eventbrite.com. Tickets are also on sale at Russellville Florist & Gifts and will be available to purchase each Sunday in November from 1-3 p.m. at the Roxy Theatre box office – and before each performance if any tickets are still available.

Organizers said they expect this year’s event to be even more highly attended after how well the production was received last year.

“This production is a time-honored tradition in this area,” assistant director Hillary Hall said. “Many people have fond memories of watching, and even being part of, Toyland when it was at Northwest-Shoals Community College for many years. Now that the Franklin County Arts and Humanities Council has revived the production, it’s something the whole family can enjoy as we introduce a whole new generation to the holiday magic this show offers.”

Lanny McAlister, director and creator of “The Legend of Toyland,” said in addition to the traditional segments that have been beloved for years, they will be staging two new segments this year.

“One of the new segments will be Beauty and the Beast, and it’s already become a favorite of mine since we’ve been rehearsing it,” he said. “The other segment takes you to the African savanna, where the circle of life that will be on display will be sure to captivate our audiences.”

Fourteen shows are planned for this year’s production, and Hall said tickets are going fast, with the first show just a little over a month away.

“We are strongly encouraging anyone interested in coming to go ahead and purchase their tickets,” she said. “We would hate for anyone to miss out and not get to be part of this fun family event that will be the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.”
