About the show:

Our unlikely hero, Bilbo Baggins, would much rather be sitting in his cozy Hobbit Hole with a cup of tea and a plate of bacon and eggs. However, he somehow finds himself on a magically mystical adventure. Staged with speed and surprises, you’ll be delighted by this exciting new telling of Tolkien’s beloved story as Bilbo travels through freezing mountains and frightening forests, meeting all sorts of fierce and wonderful creatures  — some who want to eat him and others who turn into dear friends. And discovers that some things are truly worth fighting for.

“A triumph of storytelling” – Milwaukee Journal

“Banks has brought J.R.R. Tolkien’s elaborate world of warring hobbits to the stage with imaginative flair”Star Tribune
