Dayton, Ohio (WDTN) - The Zoot Theatre Company, Dayton's only professional puppetry and mask company will produce J.R.R. Tolkein's classic tale of THE HOBBIT in the Dayton Art Institute's NCR Renaissance Auditorium, Zoot's new home.
Join Zoot Theatre in Middle Earth, as we tell the tale of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit who is much like the rest of us: he would rather sit at home and avoid any kind of adventures.
When the wizard Gandalf and his company of 13 dwarves make a surprise visit, Bilbo is dragged unwittingly into an adventure that includes goblin dodging, battles and dragon slaying.
This is J. R. R. Tolkien's masterpiece brought to life as only Zoot can do!
THE HOBBIT will feature
more than 25 life-size puppets and 11 live actors and opens September 28.
Known for its creative and imaginative puppets and masks used in each show, Zoot fulfills its Mission by blending the visual and performing arts into a single medium.
THE HOBBIT opens on Friday, September 28 and runs Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Sunday, October 14. Show times are 8pm. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm. on Sundays.
All performances are held at the Dayton Art Institute's NCR Renaissance Auditorium.
