A Hobbit's Tale

An Adventure in Middle Earth

Join DanceWorks as they present their annual Fall Family Classic this November with a new dance and theatre presentation based on the world of Tolkien. Featuring a cast of performers including young actors and dancers from the studio, we explore the world of Middle Earth.

The Shire is in the midst of celebrations when two groups of mysterious strangers arrive. The kidnapping of several of Samwise Gamgee's children starts an adventure which leads a band of Elves, Dwarves, and a Hobbit, all led by a Ranger and the daughters of Aragorn. As they travel north, the discover more of the creatures of Middle Earth, but will these creatures give aid or hamper their resolve to retrieve the children? Further to that, just why were the children taken? What nefarious plan do the Orcs have in place to once again reek havoc on the good peoples of Middle Earth. The production uniquely intigrates a variety of dance disciplines to help bring the story to life on stage.

The DanceWorks Fall Family Classic is a wonderful opportunity for our young performers to take to the stage and build upon their performance experience. We are excited to be able to bring the talents of our youth to the stage and to invite our community to join us in the experience. Proceeds of the performances also go to continued studio/theatre projects as we continue to refurbish our performance and rehearsal spaces.
