It was a great all ages play- my family really enjoyed it. The seats were fine, even though we were off to the side. The venue parking is not far- but give 5-10 minutes to walk at a slower pace. Its a very casual venue.

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.

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.
