Civic Youth Theatre Play

Between the Dawn of the Faeries and the Dominion of Men lives a conservative, although content hobbit named Bilbo Baggins. Like most Shirefolk, his main concerns are his four breakfasts and nine separate suppers. But when the mysterious Gandalf the Grey arrives in the Shire, Bilbo's simple life is turned upside down. Reluctantly, the homebody Bilbo joins a company of dwarves for the adventure of a lifetime. With the Goblin Army close at their heels, the band of travelers races to uncover the vast treasure guarded by the dreaded dragon, Smaug. As he embraces this adventurous side of himself, using his wits and common sense, Bilbo discovers wisdom and maturity he never knew he possessed.

We have prepared a study guide, which will enhance the theatre going experience for students of all ages.
