Synopsis

This one-hour version of Tolkien’s classic novel, designed for small theaters or large, is a suspenseful, fast-moving journey through the sometimes dark, sometimes charming, always compelling world of Middle Earth. Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo’s door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, 11 ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested—at first. But Bilbo’s love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy dark places.
“Our children and youth audiences and actors adored the play. Mast adapts the story into a marvelous adventure, filled with the spirit of Tolkien’s work and with strong themes about pride and forgiveness.” Review by Katie Simons, Corinth Theatre Arts, Corinth, Miss.
