Author, composer and country music star Kenny Rogers brings his original musical "The Toy Shoppe," starring TV legend Alan Thicke ("Growing Pains"), to the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) at the College of DuPage, 425 Fawell Blvd., Friday, Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. This marvelous family-friendly adventure blends old-fashioned values with the excitement of an original Broadway-style musical. With gorgeous ballads, singing and dancing toys and a beautiful message of hope and miracles, this holiday musical delights young and old alike. Thicke stars as Hank Longley, owner of Longley's Toy Shoppe, a place of magic and mystery. Famous for its vast collection of toys, Longley's shop soon becomes the target of Mr. Baxter, an overzealous entrepreneur who aims to make Longley's whimsical workshop part of his corporate chain of burger restaurants. As Baxter schemes, it is up to a cast of magical characters to save the day.
