Middle-earth comes to life! The audience is seated among the forests, caves, and creatures from the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. We accompany Bilbo and friends on his journey to become the hero Gandalf believes him to be. Fabulous costumes, lights and an impressive set design make this an unforgettable adventure. Our epic tale and its lessons of friendship, courage, war and peace resonates with both the actors and the audience. The amazing Herbie Barnes reprises his original role as Bilbo Baggins!

“Intriguing hobbit adventure enchants…at a time when children are exposed to a parade of fearless, ever-victorious super-heroes comes a cautious, hairy-footed Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins. Said one fourth grader, ‘my favourite part was the whole thing.’ “
Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press
