The problem with the Hobbit is that it is only appropriate for children who are 8-12 years old. It is too scary for anyone under eight and too corny for anyone over 12.

Had a great time. It was basically community theater for kids. Really fun, full of (surprisingly) well-behaved kids. Good time. Somehow they fit the hobbit into a 2 hour play adaptation. They did a great job

I went into the experience without knowing a lot about the organization. It is truly a Family Theater in the best sense of the word. The production engaged the kids and the show moved right along.
