When Bilbo Baggins ventures out of his hobbit hole, an epic adventure awaits. Join Bilbo, the wizard Gandalf, and a dozen determined friends as they set out to take back their home from the evil dragon, Smaug.

In partnership with Havoc Movement Company, our production re-imagines J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic masterpiece with five actors, acrobatics, and exciting fight scenes – all with a decidedly steampunk twist. Perfect for young and old adventurers alike, The Hobbit spins a tale of how with a little courage, even the smallest creatures can become heroes.

Run Time: 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission
