A chance to spend an evening in Middle-earth Can't Post



Between now and August 13, The Dukes theater in Lancashire, U.K., will be performing J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit as their summer season's 'walkabout' outdoor show. The audience will literally follow along as Bilbo Baggins joins Gandalf, Thorin, and his company of dwarves on their mission, quest, thing, to regain their long-lost treasure from the dragon Smaug. From the Westmorland Gazette:

Since 1987, The Dukes walkabout shows have transformed Williamson Park into Neverland, Oz, Ancient Greece and now Middle Earth.

I feel like the park chose The Hobbit," explained The Dukes artistic director, Joe Sumsion. "There are some shows - and this is one of them - where people's instant reaction is to say that will be great in the park. It's the natural environment for it. The strongest elements in the book are its humour and charm. We plan to capture this, offering an intimate experience where the audience can get really close to all these fascinating characters and creatures"
According to the Gazette article, there's also a Lord the The Rings and The Hobbit movie connection in that Andy Serkis began his professional acting career at The Dukes, performing in its first outdoor performance in 1987. Performances of The Hobbit are at 7:15 p.m. nightly except for Sundays. Visit The Dukes website for more information and to purchase tickets.

Somebody please please go to this and then write us a nice post here. [In reply to] Can't Post

I would so love to do this. It seems that dressing as hobbits, elves and dwarves might just be encouraged.Smile
There's a website link above and here is a quick link to their YouTube video.
