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.

It was a good experience. The play conveyed the story well. The theater was very good facility. I like the touch of the contemporary display of the dialog. I had never seen it in a theatrical production before.
