Theatre Preview: The Hobbit, 23 + 25 – 28 March, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh

3 Mar

Following three hugely successful national tours and two acclaimed capacity seasons at The Queen’s Theatre in London’s West End, JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit will be playing at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre on Tuesday 23 and from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 March.

Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented Hobbit, has his life turned upside down when he is chosen by Gandalf the Sorcerer to join Thorin Oakenshield, exiled King of the Dwarves, on his quest to reclaim their kingdom and treasure.

With the aid of magic and illusion, audiences will join Gandalf as he leads Bilbo and his Dwarf companions on a frightening but magical journey, a journey from which they might never return! A journey to hunt for the powerful hidden treasure that simply must be found and given back to its rightful owners.

Travel with them through the Misty Mountains, through wind, rain, hail and thunderstorms narrowly escaping gourmandising Trolls, vicious Goblins, avaricious wolves, and spiteful Giant Spiders. Finally Bilbo must face the guardian of the treasure, the most feared and deadly dragon of them all, Smaug…

The Festival stage will be transformed into Middle Earth for this classic adventure of wizards, magic rings and a dragon’s treasure, directed by Roy Marsden.
