April 26 – May 10, 2019


Far over the misty mountains cold

To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

A pleasing ditty to be sure, but to a homebody hobbit like Bilbo Baggins it sounds alarmingly like an adventure, and adventures are nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things that make you late for dinner. Resist as he might, however, the little hobbit is soon swept away—a reluctant hero on the adventure of his lifetime. In the company of thirteen rough and tumble dwarves and one cryptic wizard, Bilbo braves danger at every turn on this exciting quest for dragon’s gold.

Mister Bilbo Baggins cordially invites you to travel with him “There and Back Again” in this new adaptation of Tolkien’s classic tale. So come and join the quest. There’s a partner’s share of treasure waiting just for you.
