The Hobbit

Bilbo Baggins joins Gandalf the wizard for an epic adventure in the family-friendly show The Hobbit, on a journey that includes fighting a treacherous dragon as they search for a precious treasure. Based on the fantasy novel by J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit brings Middle Earth to the stage. Kevin Dean, director of the show, says, “The message of The Hobbit is adventure: daring to step outside your comfort zone and embrace the unknown.” He goes on to say, “I don’t want to give too much away. I will remind everyone, however, to never laugh at a live dragon.” 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, through January 19; 1 p.m. February 5 and 12; 7 p.m. February 11 and 18.
